This is an excerpt from the content:

“ArtStories is an exciting initiative of the Charles Darwin University Learning Research Group in Darwin. For the last 18 months ArtStories practitioner-researchers Anja Tait, Edel Musco and Catherine Threlfall have been growing this participatory research in five urban, rural and remote school communities in the Top End. ArtStories aims to support shared artmaking for learning and wellbeing for all members of the five school communities – in particular children in the early years of school, and their families, teachers and support staff. ArtStories is a multi-arts approach, responding to the creative interests and strengths of school community members and students. Participants create and tell stories of self, family, community and dreams, using combined arts approaches.” The research is described with a focus on each school community and the scope for developing this into other Communities.
