Geelong Arts Centre have just announced a free Cultural Conversations livestream event: 
Ba-gurrk Murrup (Women’s Spirit, Past, Present and Future)!

Spend your afternoon yarning with exceptional local First Nations women, as they share stories of connection to Country, place and self through their personal and creative journeys.


Facilitated by Noongar and Tuwharetoa artist and curator Kiri Wicks, join Wadawurrung Traditional Custodian and artist Deanne Gilson, Yorta Yorta/Baraparapa visual artist Dr Jenny Murray-Jones and Yorta Yorta woman/self-appointed ‘sassy, psychic witchy sister’ Allira Potter as they speak to the significant intertwinement of culture, womanhood and artistry.

In 2021, we have seen women across the globe rise to the forefront of their respective fields. In this series of Cultural Conversations, we explore what it means to be a successful First Nations woman in the 21st century, the legacy that each of these women looks to create for future generations, the messages they wish to share with other women, and how they interpret identity through culture and creative practise.

This is an opportunity for Aboriginal and Non-Aboriginal people of all gender identities to gather, join the conversation, ask questions and walk together.

 

The event is FREE, but registration essential.
