From Story to 3D Animation: Preserving Indigenous knowledge through the Monash Country Lines Project
Last year, a group of academics and staff working on the Monash Country Lines Archive gave a presentation on their work at the ATALM (Association of Tribal Archives, Libraries and Museums) Conference in Washington DC.
The Monash Country Lines Archive (MCLA) is a collaborative Monash University project between the Monash Indigenous Centre (MIC), Monash Arts and the Faculty of Information Technology with a team of Monash researchers, digital animators and post-graduate students. The Country Lines project aims to assist Indigenous Australian communities in the preservation of stories, knowledge, language and history through animation, and to maintain this knowledge across generations.
You can watch the presentations from John Bradley, Shannon Faulkhead and Brent Mckee below, or visit the MCLA website to see the animations and learn more about the project.
