Phunktional worked closely with the Robinvale community to deliver ongoing arts and wellbeing workshops for our Stories Beneath the Vale project.
In partnership with Robinvale P-12 and Robinvale District Health Services, Phunktional worked with students in years 8-12 to create an original song and video clip to share the message of healthy eating. The music video features students in grades 4 & 5 and was a positive experience for everyone involved.
Film Shot During Covid: Stories Beneath the Vale
Stories Beneath the Vale, a five-episode miniseries, is a snappy dance comedy with a booming soundtrack that features original local music. It’s a fresh, honest and funny exploration of contemporary multicultural rural life, created by Aboriginal and Pasifika communities with the support of the wider Robinvale community. Starring Emily Egan, with cameos from Denise Scott, Stephen Curry, Kutcha Edwards and more, the first episode, Companion Plants, is available to watch now!
Exploring Patterns was a two-year program that provided engaging, arts-based content for teachers and students that built resilience around the issues of sexual consent, safe partying, bullying, sexting, respectful relationships and domestic violence.
Exploring Patterns was delivered in partnership with local organisations in Dandenong and Wyndham in 2017 & 2018, with the support of the Australia Council for the Arts, Wyndham City Council, and the Marian and E.H. Flack Trust.
