In 2007, a dynamic team of multi-media trainers took their unique engagement model to a small school in the traumatized Australian indigenous community of Aurukun. The training was designed to inspire young people to engage with digital media, express their personal stories and develop capacity in new media technologies that would then inspire them in other educational area. The trainers also aspired to encourage inter-generational communication between disadvantage youth and their families in telling stories about their lives and their region. For 6 weeks the Community Prophets team, led by a former human rights lawyer and filmmaker David Vadiveloo, worked with the community and youth of Arukun. What transpired during the program was confronting, frustrating and emotionally raw.
