COMMUNITY PROJECTS

We're passionate about the research and development work we do in visual learning. We've initiated a number of community projects focused on visual learning in Papua New Guinea. We aim to empower learners and educators from different language backgrounds and with lower literacy levels.

A bit about us......

In 1967, a few days apart, Maine was born in Morobe Province, Papua New Guinea and Tim was born in the slightly less tropical environment of Launceston, Tasmania. As kids, Tim was trying to warm his feet in cow manure while Maine was dodging crocodiles and wild boar on his way to school. Although you couldn't pick two more different upbringings, for those that know them, they are very, very similar! 

Jump forward to the early Nineties and Maine and Tim formed a life long friendship while studying at Swinburne University. This connection was based on a devotion to visual communication, contribution to community and an idealistic, and rather biased notion that both kids and adults can reach their full potential aided by a key set of visual communication skills. 

So that's what V learning does. We empower learners and educators by providing the visual skill set to communicate their ideas and educate others. In PNG in particular, we aim to protect their extensive culture and language using visuals as a way to practice local language, preserve visual heritage and allowing all community members to contribute to community consultation.
