Test of Will and War: Australia

In 2004, the Trevor together with community organizer Alex Kelly and Director Scott Rankin, decided to take the theatre project further and include:
capacity building with marginalized young people, working closely with Pitjantjatjara elders and linguists, development of an online Pitjantjatjara course, and production of a cross-cultural performance work.

In 2006, the Ngapartji Ngapartji project designed the self-contained Ninti Ngapartji website, as the online language and cultural center of the project. In the photo, three young filmmakers from Pukata (Ernabella) shoot a scene for a new language lesson video under the tutelage of Suzy Bates.
