Engaging Fathers Project
The Family Action Centre University of Newcastle
This DVD was developed as part of the Engaging fathers project, an initiative of the Family Action Centre and the University of Newcastle. The DVD is designed to encourage fathers and father figures to engage in the lives of children in the 0 to 8 year age bracket. The DVD will assist schools, family services, antenatal care, child care, and early education institutions in their efforts to recruit fathers and father figures to engage with their children.
The DVD was filmed by a group of young Aboriginal fathers who were trained, over a period of three months, to film and edit using digital cameras and computer-based editing software. The DVD contains footage that presents the fathers' personal experiences with fatherhood and those of other members of the community.
