Event Details

There is an ever-increasing understanding that Australia’s First Nations cultural and creative expressions have a real value to both the broader Australian society and to international visitors. But what does that value mean and what does it really look like?

To answer this, we need to be prepared to follow the leadership offered by our First Nations communities, so we can answer critical questions within this cultural narrative such as:

• What does it mean to be part of the continuum of the world’s longest living cultures?

• How does this shape perspectives through connections of country, culture and community?

• How do these unique world views, that a grounded so deeply and strongly in this country, challenge the need to reset Australia’s consciousness around its identity and cultural values?

Join Pauline Clague, Rhoda Roberts, Brook Andrew and Wesley Enoch in a conversation facilitated by Create NSW’s Peter White that will explore these issues and offer new approaches and insights on the true value of Aboriginal culture in this country.
