Acknowledgement of Country


Bayadyinyang budyari Dharug yiyura Dharug Ngurra.
Bayady’u budyari Dharug Warunggadgu baranyiin barribugu.
Bayady’u budyari wagulgu yiyuragu Ngurra bimalgu Blacktown City. Flannel flowers dyurali bulbuwul.
Yanmannyang mudayi Dharug Ngurrawa. Walama ngyini budbud dali Dharug Ngurra Dharug yiyura baranyiin barribugu.


We acknowledge the Traditional Custodians of this Land, the Dharug people, and their continued connection to Country.
We pay our respects to Elders from yesterday to tomorrow.
We extend that respect to all Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Peoples of Blacktown City where the flannel flowers still grow proud and strong.
We will walk softly on this land and open our hearts to Country as the Dharug people have for tens of thousands of years.

In Flipbook Films, 6 – 8 year olds will be able to make their very own story come alive from cartoon drawings and digital media.

Tell a story. Draw a story. Model it and film it. Make your very own story go POP! From cartoon drawings to making a living, breathing story on film – you will have a fun-packed time with friends. Click here to book.

In Lost and Found Films, 9-12 year olds will be invited to work in small teams to create their own mini-film using claymation and found objects.

Create your own mini-film using claymation and found objects. In your pocket is an old coin or a key that sparks a story… In your mind characters lurk – waiting to be brought to life… Work in a small team to make your own unique short animation!  Click here to book.

Each young artist will be sent a link of their final work one day after the workshop ends! Bookings are required and spots are limited. Tickets are $15 per person.
