Kheiryn completed the placement as part of her studies with ASHE/VCAL. The subject, Work Related Skills was designed to get students ‘work ready’.

During her placement, Kheiryn interviewed two of GOTAFE’s Certificate II ATSI Cultural Arts students, Simone and Dakota McGee about a project they are currently completing, family tree project.
The short video, created by Kheiryn and Will (click here to view) gives the viewer an insight into the research they are undertaking in Aboriginal art, family and culture . The painting will be displayed at Kaiela Arts, as part of Christmas exhibition ” Design Roots 2″, opening 30 November.
