The Quairading Animation Project

Young Way

Added by CAN WA

Description CAN WA partnered with Quairading District High School (QDHS) and artist in residence, Steven Aiton in 2013 to develop a series of short animated films that portray Noongar dreamtime stories and experiences of students throughout the QDHS’s 100-year history.
One of the short films tells the story of Noongar Elder John Kickett who campaigned to have his children attend the local school in the early 1900s. The animation reveals how his efforts marked the beginning of the end of segregated education in Western Australia.
The animation project was funded by the Department of Culture and the Arts through the ArtsEdge Artist-In-Residency grants program.
