The Project

Building upon their work at Alexandria Community School, Lorna Munro and Eric Avery will take their Aboriginal language project, Yala Gari (“speak the truth”) to their senior counterparts. Over the course of one day, Lorna and Eric will work with year 8 students to develop unique poetry that respond to their local surrounds using Aboriginal languages.
