Skills and training for young people PDF Print E-mail

The Computer Culture project addresses the concerns raised by elders and other leaders of Cape York. The project facilitates:

  1. preserving our languages and cultures
  2. strengthening our identity
  3. encouraging our young people in the importance of education
  4. being proud of who we are
  5. managing our lands appropriately, according to our laws and culture.

Computer Culture is getting families engaged in education through cultural transmission using digital technology. This not only involves recording/documenting biographies, languages, stories and special places but also using our young local indigenous people, helping them to acquire the skills and training in multimedia and IT to enable them to work in a school environment with children and the wider indigenous community.
