Gawa Yolnu Seasons Project

Gotha is passionate about her research and work in using digital technologies to engage her community and provide new ways to imagine their future. For many years Gotha has been using digital technologies to develop educational resources and materials based on her extensive cultural knowledge and in particular the Warramiri languarge. In late 2012, at a workshop held at Gawa, school children and community members worked with Gotha and Trevor van Weeran (Merri Creek Productions) to explore some of Gotha's ideas for how the community can both develop and keep Yolnu culture alive and strong. This Seasonal Calendar was one of the products of the workshop. It is now being used as a basis of curriculum in the Gawa school and has been made available to the general public.
