Kids’ Own was honoured to partner with multilingual advocacy group ViệtSpeak, and researchers Associate Professor Julie Choi and Liz Murray on this project to explore a new way of presenting contemporary language use in multilingual Australia.

Crocodile, Unicorn and the worlds they encounter are creations from a series of workshops facilitated by Kids’ Own Publishing artists Ana Rita Pires and Viet-My Bui with the children and parents. The Saturday morning gatherings were an opportunity for the group to talk, listen and draw together. Sitting around the table, the old and new friends shared stories of language pride and shame, identity and transformation, and explored what it means to have, lose, hold onto, learn and pass on language and culture.
