This webinar is the first in the Australian Centre’s 2023 Critical Public Conversations series: Country, Climate, Colonialism
The Launch of The Australian Centre’s 2023 Critical Public Conversation webinar series coincides with International Women’s Day. This webinar will be hosted by four extraordinary women - Wurundjeri Elder and a fellow of the Indigenous Knowledge Institute Professor Aunty Dianne Kerr; Wurundjeri, Dja Dja Wurrung and Ngurai Illum Wurrung dancer and educator Stacie Piper; Yorta-Yorta and Quandamooka (Noonuccal Nation) Medical doctor and Public Health scholar Dr Ngaree Blow; and Yorta Yorta Dja Dja Wurrung songwriter/composer/academic Dr Lou Bennett AM.
Drawing on their experience as Traditional Owners, the panel will explore the importance of Country and what it means to them, particularly in this climate crisis. This special event will set the scene for the Centre’s 2023 research theme: Country, Climate, Colonialism.
