The board game, titled The Storyteller, was created by Geelong Wathaurong/Ngarrindjeri man Glenn Shea, who was a youth justice worker at the Wathaurong Aborginal Co-operative when the game was created.
The idea for The Storyteller evolved through Glenn’s personal experience of working with Aboriginal adolescents and young people.
The Storyteller, a cultural educational resource, was designed to provide a unique learning experience which immerses participates in a stimulating and challenging learning activity which can be used in classroom settings for the development of cultural awareness and for recreational purposes. The Storyteller is a board game which was developed to provide knowledge and understanding of Aboriginal people, society and culture utilising a generic and non-political framework. It is grounded in developing an awareness of traditional Aboriginal culture and modern Aboriginal themes within a contemporary setting.
