The Pawa Meri Project: An Account of the Collaboration So Far

Ceridwen Spark


In this paper, I describe a research and filmmaking project currently underway in Papua New Guinea. Entitled Pawa Meri (meaning powerful or strong women), the project is a collaboration between Victoria University in Melbourne, Australia and the University of Goroka in the Eastern Highlands Province of PNG. Pawa Meri is funded by the gender division of AusAID and involves making six films about leading Papua New Guinean women.
