On this episode of Women on the Line we speak with Fijian Australian-born artist Yasbelle Kerkow (iTaukei Fijian vasu Batiki, Lomaiviti), who is one of the lead artists for Kal Angam-Kal: Stories from West Papua. Kal Angam Kal illuminates the little-known history of exiled West Papuan Elders residing in Narrm through the unique lens of the community's youth. Yasbelle has collaborated with West Papuan artist, Cyndi Makabory (Biak and Waropen), to bring this project to life.The exhibition features new film works in which six young community members conduct interviews with their chosen Elders. Kal Angam-Kal is the first film exhibition to tell the stories of the West Papuan community by the community in Narrm. The show will be debuting at Footscray Community Arts on the 1st November and will run until the 28th January 2024.
