Have you ever had a conversation with country? If you listen carefully, can you hear her way of speaking with us?

Immerse in the sounds of children and country hearing each other. These listening walks have been created by a team of Jarjums (Indigenous children) in collaboration with Quandamooka artist Libby Harward, their older siblings and our Mother Earth.

The Jarjums and Libby will also collaborate with Kabi Kabi and Jinibara Traditional Custodians, Kids in Action Youth Leaders and children from The River School in Maleny to develop and host a series of workshops guided by First Nations listening practices as they gather stories with country.

These young people will take part in Horizon Festival 2022 by facilitating the listening walks. The project will also be presented at the Kids in Action with the kids leading the walks for the participating schools.
