Kimberley Coronavirus Animation

You need to allow cookies on our site, to be able to see this video / embeded content.

Watch this beautiful animation raising awareness about the dangers of Coronavirus spreading among the Aboriginal population in the Kimberley region in Australia. Aboriginal people are among the most vulnerable due to effects of ongoing colonization in Australia. They are in great danger if the virus spreads among them.

Together with her partner and our friend Chris Griffiths and others, our Memefest friend, comrade and collaborator Alana Hunt has been working on this wonderful animation, which is now spreading like a little virus round the globe.

It is a strong and beautiful piece of art. Watch it, share it and discuss it.
It is crucial we maintain existing and establish new relations for dialogue. This virus is not just a public health issue!


Produced, directed and edited by Bernadette Trench-Thiedeman in collaboration with Nirrumbuk Environmental Health & Services (Pty Ltd) Chris Griffiths and Alana Hunt and Kimberley Aboriginal Medical Services

Hey, welcome to the official Memefest blog!

Since 2003 we have been using a blog platform as tactical media to reflect, critique, comment and inform around the broad field of communication. Now in 2010 with our newly conceived on-line platform we hope that through time this space will evolve in a collaborative blog media with a wider group of contributors to the global discourse around social responsibility of media and communication. Stuff that you can find here is either original or carefully and originally edited from other sources.  There is a good chance that you will find things that will be of good use for you too if you follow us more regularly.

Of course we look at Memeblog as a dialogic platform. Your comments are encouraged and mostly welcome.
