We Look, We Find


This storybook is the result of a collaborative story writing and art workshop held in the Napranum Community during 2021. The stimulus for the story came from reviewing archived photographs of preschool excursions that documented children’s experiences of being on Country with family and Elders. The story features Thaynakwith language words as documented in Thanakupi’s Guide to Language and Culture: A Thaynakwith Dictionary 2007. Tissue paper, black ink, pastel and dye were used in the artistic process by Napranum women and children from the Napranum Early Childhood Centre. The elements were collaged together under the direction of Roshni Senapati to create the final artwork.
