Tricontinental

In late March 2021, 120 traditional owners from 40 different First People’s groups spent five days at the National First People’s Gathering on Climate Change in Cairns (Australia). Speaking on the impact of the climate crisis on First People, Gavin Singleton from the Yirrganydji traditional owners explained that ‘From changing weather patterns to shifts in natural ecosystems, climate change is a clear and present threat to our people and our culture’.

My late Aunty Hyllus Maris features in this month's newsletter along with my piece 'Awakening' dedicated in her honour. Read the remaining article and newsletter here.

我与Eltham图书馆可爱的Roslyn谈了谈我最近为他们的孩子们的花园创作的壁画。我想给空间一些颜色,同时保留周围的泥土灌木丛感。对我来说,将Bunjil和Waa的当地祖先精神传达给后代非常重要。
