Samuel Stream has been involved with the SEE programs at Kimberley Group Training for six months and has already had success writing his own stories. It was announced recently that Sam was successful in the 2014 Indigenous Creators Scholarship offered by Magabala Books, a Broome based indigenous publishing company. Sam applied for the scholarship after creating a series of small books which combine two of his great passions - painting and drawing, together with station life at Mount Edgar outside of Marble Bar, the area from where Sam originates. Sam is an enthusiastic storyteller and it has been a natural combination to bring together his artistic talent and unique insights into outback living. Sam has been awarded an scholarship worth more than $1000, money to go towards art materials plus the opportunity to attend a specialist short course in Arts at Edith Cowan University in Perth.
Good luck Sam and we look forward to seeing and reading more of your story!
