Today, we shine the spotlight on one of our incredible Virtual Village members, small creative business Songlines Art Culture Education, to share more on their beautiful and important work.

Songlines Art Culture Education is an Indigenous owned company, run by educator Clare Schoeller and artist Russell Yilamara Brown founded with a rebellious spirit of self determination to provide innovative ways to empower Aboriginal people through Art, Culture and Education while embedding Indigenous perspectives into the broader community.

To showcase this business, we've selected three of our favourite products available for purchase online:

Handmade and hand painted set of clapsticks.

Clapsticks are a traditional percussive instrument used for ceremony, social dancing, making music and songs and to educate through storytelling. As for many traditional tools, they can serve more than one purpose, like also being used to dig for yams.

These clapstick are specifically made for small hands and ideal for any early years educational setting.
