Join moderator Clothilde Bullen, Curator of Yhonnie Scarce: The Light of Day, for an insightful and timely panel discussion from First Nations leaders transforming the way we respond to our shared histories of place and environmental concerns in Australia.
The artist Yhonnie Scarce, Professor Stephen Van Leeuwin and Associate Professor Natalie Harkin will engage in an important and broad-reaching conversation about the historical and contemporary impacts of mining, nuclear destruction, the historical legacy of archives, memorials and indentured labour in Australia, and the ways in which our continent can sustainably continue to hold our stories, all through a First Nations lens.
