Step into the world of the Junjurri!
Junjurri’s you ask? Who are they?
Junjurri’s are a part of our dreaming. They are tiny, native spirits something akin to a faerie. Junjurri’s cared for nature and lived amongst it. Every part of Australia was blessed with junjurri footsteps. From the snowy mountains to the red desert, the salty oceans to the tropical rainforests and all the dry bushlands in between these are the places magical junjurris lived! Junjurris helped the seeds to grow and flowers to bloom. They healed plants and animals in all parts of the land.

Junjurri Workshop is an interactive art and storytelling workshop developed as a learning tool for kinder and primary aged students.
This workshop was designed by Aboriginal artist and educator Nathalie McLean to give children an immersive and nurturing experience by learning aspects of her indigenous culture passed down from the Gubbi Gubbi, Wakka Wakka, and Kullali people of Queensland, Australia.
The focus of the workshop is art and storytelling. Your students will have the opportunity to:
· Be the artist and storyteller (become the Junjurri!)
· Create and discuss Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander artwork
· Learn traditional symbols
· Learn traditional language through movement and song
We keep our culture strong through stories, art, dance and song! Junjurri workshop delivers a fun and educational experience for all kinder and primary aged students.
We can provide educators with a comprehensive breakdown of the educational curriculum standards covered during the workshop and follow up activities.
