1.5 hours at Koorie Heritage Trust
30 minute break
2 hours at The Channel
Give your students an in-depth full-day experience engaging with local Koorie history and investigating contemporary Koorie culture, culminating in a video-making project to consolidate their learning.
Starting at the Koorie Heritage Trust at Federation Square, students will be taken on the Birrarung Wilam (River Camp) Walk, learning about the significance of the Birrarung Wilam to the Wurundjeri peoples, and how the land on which the Birrarung is located has changed over time. Taking in the Aboriginal art installations and Birrarung Marr (side of the river of mists) students will be led by an experienced Koorie guide from the Trust, hearing stories that promote and celebrate continuing living Victorian Aboriginal Culture.
Following on from the walking tour, students will visit The Channel, Arts Centre Melbourne, to edit together a digital story which explores some of the topics discussed on the walk. Students will use video editing software and audio equipment to narrate a short video piece, which will be made available for download after the workshop.
If you would like specific content to complement student learning in the classroom, please contact us to discuss.
Student work will be made available for download after the workshop, emailed to the teacher making the booking.
