In 2012 the State Library QLD commissioned Soymilk Studio to animate four original stories illustrated and told by children of different Aboriginal communities in North Queensland (Injinoo, Lockhart, Wujal Wujal and Pormpuraaw). On one of those stories, The Kaangkan brothers, we got to accompany a team from SLQ Cairns and traveled to the Pormpuraaw to conduct an illustration and animation workshop. We spent a week there working and learning together with children, local artists and the elders of the community. The experience and the kids have taught us so much !
