A night by the fire: sustainability

A night by the fire

This event is now in the past.

Join kuril dhagun for a conversation series exploring the parallels and intersections of modern science with traditional Indigenous methodologies of caring for country.

As the trends of upcycling, recycling and repurposing sweep our nation, we consider the role of traditional Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander practices of sustainability.

Are customary methods relevant in the 20th century? Or as humans have we evolved past these traditions?

Explore these issues with speakers from community in October, then join the conversation in the final panel forum in November.

Tue 6 Oct:  Dale Chapman

Tue 3 Nov: Forum led by Dale Chapman, Danny Doyle and Sonja Carmichael
