Students are guided into the story as visual language in discussing Human Rights, activism for land rights, connection to Country, social dialogues, and cultural and community issues. Intellectual Property Rights (IPR) and Copyright are clarified through Law and spiritual belief. Further to this, students will gain an understanding of ethical behaviour regarding Aboriginal material culture and knowledge. Students from the creative industries, community development and education will benefit from this course.
