The next talk in the First Nations Speaker Series will feature Wiradjuri librarian and museum educator Nathan “Mudyi” Sentance on 'Remembering and Re-storying: Storytelling approaches I have taken to confront uncomfortable histories'.

How do we get audiences to engage with uncomfortable histories, especially histories related to the ongoing impact of settler colonialism?

Nathan “Mudyi” Sentance has been asking this question for over a decade. Join him as he discusses how he has worked to create more space in galleries, libraries, archives, and museums for First Nations representation and truth telling.

Listen to his journey to examine new ways to get audiences to engage in uncomfortable histories and how instead of guilt or anger, audiences learning brutal histories were inspired to action.. 

This event will be held both onsite and livestreamed online via the event webpage.

The First Nations Speaker Series is proudly support by GML Heritage, the Research Centre for Deep History at the Australian National University and Sydney Living Museums.
