Beyond the Emu
26 March 2020
SLQ Auditorium 1, State Library of Queensland

Summary

Bruce Pascoe’s groundbreaking work, Dark Emu, has shifted the national conversation around the sophisticated environmental sciences and sustainable practices of Australia’s First Peoples. But how and where can those cultural knowledge systems be implemented as contemporary interventions in a world on the brink?

Join Torres Strait Islander knowledge-holder Uncle Jeff Aniba-Waia, performance maker Margaret Harvey and environmental advocate Lynette Wallworth to reflect on the responsive knowledge and ways of life that ensured environmental sustainability in Australia for millennia and learn how these approaches can be applied within a global context.
