MAGNETIC PLACES – BERANGA (we belong – Darug Language)
Beranga, set in North St Marys, involved 13 young people getting together to create works of art which included visual and digital media.
Community Junction Inc. partnering with Daisy and Thomas from Curiousworks (a media company) have focused on young people getting to know each other while learning various other aspects of digital media.
One week involved learning and experimenting how a camera works by creating mock interviews and filming themselves. They also learnt film terms for different types of photography and filming shots. The final weeks of the project saw young people inspired by Uncle Wes a local Indigenous Elder storyteller passing down stories about events in his life and encouraging young people to do the same with their lives and culture whilst celebrating the history and culture of their community.
