Monday 19 October from 12pm to 1pm

It has never been more important to be sharing Indigenous knowledge. So many solutions to the problems we face today can be found in that wisdom.

It is impossible to overestimate the powerful contribution of Bruce Pascoe's work, in particular the seminal _Dark Emu, _which has inspired a number of projects here at the University, including the Indigenous Grasslands for Grain project.

The detail and grace in Pascoe's research and writing has unlocked important conversations and reawakened knowledge. In this event, Pascoe will share insights into sustainable farming and practices, with a keynote address on the idea of 'Perennial Soil'. 

Pascoe will be joined by Dr Angela Pattison, plant breeder and agricultural scientist from the University of Sydney. Pattinson is the research lead for the Indigenous Grasslands for Grain, a cross-disciplinary project that aims to regenerate the Australian native system for the modern food environment. It is a concept that brings together cultural and scientific knowledge, regional and urban centres, and sustainability with economic viability.

Professor Lisa Jackson Pulver AM,Deputy Vice-Chancellor (Indigenous Strategy and Service), will provide an introduction and Acknowledgement of Country.

The University of Sydney is pleased to be establishing an annual lecture on pre-colonial Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander culture, made possible by a donation from the Winch family.
