A partnership between the membership and a distant group is supported by Katherine Reckord, a Canberra artist who  relocated to Kaltjiti-Fregon on SA Anangu Pitjantjatjara Yankunytjatjara lands final 12 months as a TAFE SA group lecturer to show numeracy, literacy and digital expertise to adults. She is the one coach on the studying centre.

Initially educated as a sculptor, Reckord now primarily takes images, attracts and paints utilizing ink, watercolours, gouache acrylics, oils and dyes and believes her background in artwork has been a device for speaking and connecting along with her new group.

“Artists out right here, once they present you their work, focus on it very in another way to our western concepts,” she says.

“They let you know the story of the picture they made and will even break into tune in language which is probably the most superb creative expertise to witness.”

She describes residing and dealing within the APY lands as “a two-way studying expertise”.

“To be a very good instructor you need to be a very good learner, and open to alternative ways of issues. Residing and dealing within the APY Lands with Anangu individuals and studying Pitjantjatjara language is a really treasured factor.”
