Thursday 21 September 2023 from 6pm to 8pm

6:30pm start

Indigenous communities around the world have been living with widespread cultural and environmental change for centuries, their practices continuing, adapting or becoming dormant in response. Some are now being ‘discovered’ anew.

This conversation invites contemporary First Nations designers from two collectives – Barangga and Parramatta Weaving Garden Collective – to share ‘new to some’ perspectives on what meeting the challenges of contemporary design and practice looks like when you are connected to an enduring holistic culture.

Barangga is a gathering of ‘design mob’ that has grown into an extensive public program; Parramatta Weaving Garden Collective is a formal group of artists, supported by Parramatta Artist Studios, who will establish a cross-community weaving garden on the roof of Powerhouse Parramatta.
