This DVD has been prepared to make these four animations more available, cover production costs, and to generate funding to create more animations in the near future.

This is a fantastic resource for language teachers and for anyone, young or old, wishing to start learning the Wiradjuri language. Based around four songs by Dr Uncle Stan Grant and Dr John Rudder. These songs are designed to accompany the Wiradjuri Language Songbooks 1 and 2.

New animations underway

There are two new animations underway. We are obviously working towards a series. This series will also have accompanying explanations with them from Uncle Stan Grant. Bernard is working on Uncle Stan’s Brolga song, which will be a precursor to the animations for the PhD, and Tim Amaro is bringing his characters back for another appearance in Yamandhu Marang.

Lots of things happening

Lots of things are happening under the bonnet which will be revealed in time. Since the last post we have had one trip to Menindee with Aunty Joyce Hampton, senior Ngyampaa elder, working on the book of her life story. We head off on another adventure to Lake Cargelligo shortly. The nature of this project is quite personal but Aunty Joyce did say we can post a couple of photos here. The crew at Trida.

Sharing and Learning has been recently been involved in the development of a number of Wiradjuri Language learning resources including language pronunciation videos with Uncle Stan Grant and animations of Wiradjuri language songs. A number of these projects are coming to fruition. This animation below, animated by Pam Readford, is one of the first animations to be complete. A lot of thought went into making the animation a genuine learning tool. The more you watch it the more it grows on you.

Creativity, Respect, Collaboration
