100-word blurb

CreativeSpirits.info is an educational website that helps you learn about contemporary Australian Aboriginal culture.

Its fully referenced articles articles cover all aspects of Aboriginal life and give voice to Australia’s First Peoples. Photos, tables, quotes and diagrams illustrate the content, and the occasional ‘homework’ nudges you to reflect.

Students and teachers benefit from vast listings of Aboriginal resources like movies, musicians and books. A growing number of e-learning materials, such as infographics, help comprehend topics quickly.

Popular topics are Stolen Generations, a timeline, identity and population statistics. Aboriginal poetry is an audience magnet.

Background information about CreativeSpirits.info

I created Creative Spirits in 2000 as a site to document my travels through Western Australia, publish my photography and poetry.

In 2006 I added a section about Aboriginal culture where I started to share what I had learned and read. Over time I noticed that I had started filling a void—many Australians are hungry for ‘real’ information about Aboriginal culture.

Today CreativeSpirits.info consumes most of my spare time. I do everything: researching, writing, photography, creating educational resources, content management, marketing, SEO, software maintenance, writing templates, creating the design, optimising for speed.

Background information about Jens Korff

Picture of Jens Korff, author of this website

I was born in Melbourne but grew up in Germany - a fact which I believe helps me see Aboriginal Australia with a fresh pair of curious eyes.

I have a postgraduate diploma in IT and am working as a web developer in my day job - my hobby became my profession, and now both mutually nurture each other.

I am a conscious man interested in self-development, supporting marginalised groups and exploring creativity.
