twelve canoes

A friend who lives in the NT has recently alerted us to the digital media project twelve canoes. It is a website presenting, in an artistic, cultural and educational context, the stories, art and environment of the Yolngu people who live around the Arafura swamp in north-eastern Arnhem Land.

The collective, presents aspects of their present and everyday lives in their hometown of Ramingining.

The website has been created and developed by Ten Canoes filmmaker Rolf de Heer and Molly Reynolds in conjunction with a consultative committee from the Ramingining Community who are all community elders and artists in their own right.
It truly is a beautiful website - very well laid out with an abundance of artworks and informative short fims! The other 13-18 canoe projects, all works in progress, can be found here...
