Noomool is the first collaboration between the ISX and Pozible - the Melbourne based crowdfunding group. Please support this project. We seek funding for no ordinary documentary. It is a fight to build awareness about the importance of the incredible pristine environment of the King Sound and a culture in danger of being lost. By investing in this project you are investing in the preservation of this incredible natural environment and the spirit of the Mayala people.

Miss Emily Aboriginal Art

Miss Emily Aboriginal Art commenced as a CDEP program approximately 5-6 years ago. After
approximately 3 years Barbara Egan, one of the CDEP participants became the sole
owner of the business. "Miss Emily Aboriginal Art" is registered in Barbara's name.
The business commenced with the manufacturing of hand dyed silk scarves. Framed silk
art work was also produced. This process was supported through training provided by
Sunraysia Institute of TAFE. Business Mentoring support was provided by Madec Jobs
Australia.
Since the businesses inception sales outlets have been established Australia wide.
Products have also been exhibited at the Aus-Trade Fairs in Canada. New York Citv and
Toronto. The organisation has also been a recipient of a Telstra business award.
The business has on average 5-6 people from the CDEP at any time participating in the
operation. Each of these people possesses different skills and abilities.
Miss Emily was recently featured on the ABC television show "Message Stick". This has
contributed to the many people who visit the shed to purchase products as well as view
the production process.
ln recent times the range of silk products produced has expanded to include exquisite bags, ties and exquisite sarongs and is currently unable to keep up with the high demand for these unique silk products which are attractively presented and packaged to attract the eye of the consumer.
The business has now added ceramic products to its range, pouring, cleaning, firing and
hand painting each stunning and individual piece using a variety of techniques. The Sunraysia Institute of TAFE delivered training in this area earlier in 2004 with all students successfully completing the program.
