Jane Hanckel Co-founder & Director
I have a background in film, communication, business and education. I have worked with leading Australian filmmakers, including co-producing with Chris Noonan and Richard Mordaunt in the 1980’s one of Australia’s most acclaimed documentary films – Stepping Out and editing with Sara Bennett 14’Good, Eighteen’s Better directed by Gillian Armstrong. In the 1980’s I was the Documentary Project Manager at the Australian Film Commission for two years overseeing the Documentary Production Fund and the Documentary Fellowship Program with Tom Haydon.
I am an author and creator of two books, Growing Greener Children and Parenting as an Art, internationally published books on education. Parenting as an Art was translated and published in China by Lipin Publishers, Beijing and by Huy Hoang Publishing House in Vietnam. I have introduced successful innovative education programs into disadvantaged communities across Australia, spoken at international conferences across the world on education, health and wellbeing and in 2017 I created the Amazing Child Online Course which brought together research and knowledge for parents and educators.
In March 2019 I traveled to the UK and Finland to start filming CREATIVE RESONANCE. The film and development of the concept is informed by my fourteen years of research in socially and economically disadvantaged communities In Australia, including Aboriginal urban and remote communities where I developed and ran programs to support wellbeing of children and families. I have worked with and seen the struggles of children, families and communities as they attempt to try to establish meaningful relationships with each other and try to keep their children at school in a system in which they have little faith and belief. I believe the film and the iVALUE App will provide much needed support for these families to make more informed choices and to establish better communication and connection that will result in improved well being, resilience and self-esteem for their children.
I am an Associate Board Member of the Northern Rivers Community Foundation, a foundation that connects people and communities to tackle challenging social and environmental problems in the Northern Rivers. NSW, Australia.
