Blak Dot Gallery in collaboration with The Counihan Gallery In Brunswick is proud to present Conversation Exchange: "Place and Belonging in Contemporary Australian Society from both sides of the street", a panel discussion where First Peoples engage in dialogue with culturally and linguistically diverse people.
What are the commonalities and shared experiences between both communities? What does it mean to live and create on Aboriginal land? How can First Peoples and culturally and linguistically diverse people work in solidarity together?
This unique panel discussion will bring together Aboriginal Activist Robbie Thorpe, Warriors of the Aboriginal Resistance - WAR Member Meriki Onus, Exhibition Artist Nadia Faragaab and RISE (Refugee Survivors and Ex-detainees) Founder/CEO Ramesh Fernandez. Hosted by Writer and Arts Worker/Producer Eugenia Flynn, the panel event will also bring together Gamilaraay Poet and Educator Luke Patterson with Writer, Editor and Spoken Word Artist Lian Low for a very special poetry performance.
