MUNGKARTA LIVING CULTURE DOCUMENTARY

Barkly Regional Arts have received a grant to create a short cultural documentary focusing on the Barkly community of Mungkarta. The film will document the family’s return to their homeland of Walapunpa, after over thirty years away. Filmed by Media Mob, the documentary will focus on a four day cultural camp at Walapunpa, where participants will engage in traditional bush practices including: hunting, bush medicine & tucker collecting, cooking, art, traditional dance and painting.

The aim of the camp is to reconnect the people of Mungkarta with their country, to introduce the children to their homeland for the first time, and to learn the stories and traditional ways of their ancestors. For regular updates on this project follow our Facebook & Twitter pages.
