A collective of Indigenous artists from the Mornington Peninsula, Frankston and South East Melbourne, Baluk Arts present the original illustrations from their new children’s book about Port Phillip Bay.
The Creation of On the Edge of Creation was initially developed by the Aboriginal artists at Baluk Arts from a strong need and feedback from our wider community about the lack of genuine Indigenous resources that represent Victoria and in particular the Mornington Peninsula. 'On The Edge of Creation' will promote local Victorian Aboriginal artwork, stories and people; which in turn will provide a greater understanding for schools, organisations and community.
The storybook On The Edge of Creation is a story about creation, particularly of Port Phillip Bay and how it was a large plain that was flooded because of people warring.
The storybook also explains the difference between the rainbow serpent as the creator for northern Indigenous people and Bunjil the creator and Waa for southern Indigenous people. ‘On The Edge of Creation’ aims to teach and educate people of the diversity of beliefs and how stories are particular to certain places and people.
