Future Character Design – Dechinta Bush University

  • Location: Dechinta Bush University, Blachford Lake, Akaitcho, NT
  • Date: May 4th, 2016
  • Duration: 2 hours
  • Facilitators: Skawennati, Jason Edward Lewis

Overview: We worked with a small group of Indigenous post-secondary students on a character design exercise, where we ask them to imagine a 7th-generation descendant. We gave a series of questions such as: What do they look like? What do they wear? Do they have a job? How do they travel? Since the university has little to no internet access we took a non-digital approach and had the students draw and write about their characters on paper.
