My group is looking at 2.4 – sharing language and culture.
We’re aware a lot of Indigenous cultures have sensitivities with photography and video of people who have since passed away.
Is this a consideration for the Yirrganydji people? If we’ve created tools for them to record elders recounting culture, is is appropriate to use video and audio recording? Would these recordings still be able to be used after the elders pass away?
Great thought on that. Yes, it is a consideration for the Yirrganydji people. Can you design strategies that can enable the community to share their input in terms of content curation?
Video and audio recordings are valid as the project brief encourages using different mediums to tell the stories of the past.

EWB Australia acknowledges the traditional custodians of country throughout Australia and recognise their continuing connection to land, waters and community. We pay our respects to them, their cultures and their land; to Elders both past and present; and to emerging leaders. We recognise that the Aboriginal & Torres Strait Islander people never ceded sovereignty of what we call Australia.
