Our Journey

A CDI Collaboration

An engaging multimedia collaboration between the Melbourne Indigenous Transition School, Australian Chamber Orchestra and the CDI has been launched at the 2018 MITS Gala Ball.

Written and animated by MITS students, ‘Our Journey’ provides a vehicle for Indigenous students to depict their own stories and experiences of living and studying in Melbourne.

Utilising freshly-designed animal characters and an orchestral musical soundscape, students learnt how to convey their own stories in an instantly engrossing manner, complete with the use of vivid colour animation.

Led by Samantha Edwards-Vandenhoek, the CDI project was made possible through the Marngo Designing Futures tertiary aspiration program, which is directly funded by the Higher Education Participation and Partnerships Program.

Officially released in front of hundreds of guests at the MITS Gala Ball, ‘Our Story’ is now live and viewable here.
