Wangka Irrititha munu Kuwarritha | Old meets New: Southern Luritja project

Watch the Martutharra Luritja 'Old meets New' presentation for the Knowledge Intersections Symposium September 2021 to hear Maureen Campbell talking about the project with daughter Donna and granddaughter Kyra.

One of the first project activities was for the project team Elder Maureen Campbell and grandkids, Kyra, Reanna and Ian, and nephew, Dwight to participate in a First Nations Media archiving workshop. In this workshop they learned about the FNMA Archive Resources Toolkit and the Mukurtu platform for content management and for community access to project materials. During the workshop the team began to create a Mukurtu site, which they are now beginning to populate. At this stage the site is not public but you can learn more about mukurtu at

First Nations Media Archiving Workshop Group March 2021. Among the participants in the workshop are Luritja project team members Maureen Campbell, front left and behind her Kyra Campbell, Ange Harrison, Reanna Campbell and Dwight Campbell.

This arts-based project has seen the language community engage in a number of workshops during 2021 with the Batchelor Institute Art Department. These workshops are open to young and old alike.
