Wooden Boat Festival takes on new dimensons

by Linda Carr

Seeing from another’s perspective

In 2016 the Wooden Boat Festival will extend its scope to new aspects of the wooden boat legacy. There will be additional activities for those interested in maritime art and culture in general.

One of these will be the showing of the short film “Seeing the Land from an Aboriginal Canoe”.

This documentary, made by Ballarat-based Wind & Sky Productions, explores the significant contribution Aboriginal people made in colonial times by guiding people and stock across the river systems of Victoria.  It is an eye-opening account of our joint history, stories that most of us have never heard about.  Cast members will be on hand to answer audience questions, to share their knowledge of this interesting history and to tell their own stories of building a bark canoe.

Put this on your list of must-sees over the long week-end in March 2016
