Tim's Journey

A group of Eastern Anmatyerr women from Engawala community have been studying Visual Arts at Batchelor Institute for the last couple of years. One aspect of the project has been a focus on the megafauna found at Alcoota, very near the Engawala Community. This has led to a partnership with MAGNT and the production of an animated fictional story of a boy going back in time to meet the megafauna. This has been produced as a bilingual animation which is running at the Megafauna Museum in Alice Springs. We are working on a book of the story to go with the animation.
