Condobolin’s Beverly Coe, Zanette Coe and Stephen Lemmon have written and illustrated their own stories which were inspired by the project ‘Talking about Health in Wiradjuri.’
These fabulous stories were then published with a QR code on the back of the book so you can hear the author’s reading their stories (site and resources coming soon).
A wonderful collaboration between Wiradjuri Condobolin Corporation, Orange Aboriginal Medical Service and the University of Sydney.
Wiradjuri Condobolin Corportation said: “Thank you Jakelin Troy, Janette Thambyrajah for publishing and all of you hard work, James Newman and the Mums & Bubs group in Orange for sharing your stories and working alongside us. Thank you Joel Harrison for all of your hard work and valuable knowledge. Beverly and Zannette Coe were also fortunate to work together on an amazing art piece focusing on the renewal of Wiradjuri language, health, healing and those all important connections to country and culture. Beverly is currently busy coordinating an exhibition for the Charles Perkins Institute Sydney. We are so proud of all of you and thank you for sharing and allowing us to highlight the amazing talent that we have within our community.”
This project was supported by the Australian Governments Indigenous Languages & Art program.
