Too Much Bats
Too Much Bats was created at Wugularr School, Katherine, and Ghunmarn Cultural Centre, Beswick (Wugularr) with artists from Djilpin Arts and facilitated by puppeteer Jenny Ellis.
Over five days of workshops in April 2016, every child in the school contributed their ideas and artwork in response to stories shared by elder Vera Cameron and a topical issue – a large bat population in Wugularr. The result is a simple story aimed at supporting early readers that draws on local language vernacular.
