The Corner Plays

Using the characters and scenes from Margaret Lawrie's Tales from Torres Strait, the digital stories are a retelling of two traditional stories from the Torres Strait Islands. The artworks were created by the children from the Picture This workshops at the State Library of Queensland. They were then filmed and turned into the digital stories that are now screening in The Corner.
