M for Amma! collaborates with newly settled families with young children to produce creative digital educational resources that are engaging and reflective of the diversity of Australian families.
The first pilot series of videos promote the importance of speaking first languages at home and of play in early childhood. Using arts and crafts, film and sound the short videos explore simple themes like greetings, counting, singing and playing as experienced by the participating families.
Videographer : Barbara Guzman Galeb
Animation artist: Jin Hien Lau
