The Dreaming is an award winning animation series recommended by educational institutions throughout Australia and is widely used as a teaching resource for across the curriculum studies in schools and learning institutions in each State and Territory for years 1-10.

These animated films are based on Australian Aboriginal storytelling (oral histories) that have been maintained as a body of knowledge for over 40,000 years.

There are 6 parts to the complete series, and each looks at unique indigenous stories, beautifully animated by Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander artists. Children love them and adults are amazed at what they learn about Australia from each story.

 


“What is fantastic about The Dreaming is that it speaks to all cultures, all ages, and all people…it isn’t just something for Aboriginal Australia …it is something for everyone”.

–  Hon Linda Burney MP. Former President NSW AECG

“Once you connect with the Dreaming it’s a springboard to the next link in regards to using and adapting it through all your curriculum, whether its through English, through Maths, through Science you have that link of how you can engage your students, your community and how you can engage parents”

– Charline Emzin-Boyd.  Aboriginal Education Co-ordinator NSW Teachers Federation
