Elders need to print book to tell stories for future generations

LOCAL Aboriginal woman Dale Roberts has worked with some of the Northern Rivers’ Elders for more than two years, recording their stories before they are lost.

After consulting further with the Elders it was agreed that a book would produce a lasting legacy celebrating their life stories and passing on knowledge to future generations. The Elders called the book Our Way Stories.

Arts Northern Rivers came on board and secured funding from Arts NSW, allowing Ms Roberts to spend eight months capturing the Elders’ stories. The support from Arts NSW also included a payment to the Elders – but it wasn’t enough to publish the book.

“We knew we would need another funding source to take the project to its final phase – the print production of a quality book,” said Arts Northern Rivers CEO Peter Wood.

The Elders Book Project crowdfunding campaign is to cover the $13,500 printing and publication costs of the 120-page large format book.
