In late 2012, school children and community members worked with Gotha and Merri Creek Productions to explore some of Gotha's ideas for how the community can both develop and keep Yolnu culture alive and strong. The collaboration resulted in this Seasonal Calendar which is now being used as a basis of curriculum in the Gawa school and is available to the general public.
