Still in my mind: Gurindji location, experience and visuality

Still in my mind: Gurindji location, experience and visuality


Add to calendar

Presenter:  CDU Art Gallery

Date: Nov 01, 2018 to Feb 16, 2019

Time: 10:00am to 4:00pm

Contact person:  Eileen Lim, Exhibitions and Collections officer
T: 889466621
E: artgallery@cdu.edu.au

Location:  CDU Art Gallery, Building Orange 12, ground floor, Casuarina Campus

Target audience:  This event is open for public

Still in my mind: Gurindji experience, location and visuality is an exhibition that considers the ongoing impact of the famous 1966 ‘Wave Hill Walk-off’.

The walk-off saw 200 Aboriginal stockmen, station workers, and their families follow the lead of Gurindji elder, Vincent Lingiari, to strike in protest over poor wages. The event had far-reaching social and political repercussions in Australia and is considered pivotal in the Aboriginal land-rights movement.

Curated by Gurindji descendant and participating artist Brenda L. Croft, Still in my mind features a diverse range of media including photographs, digital platforms and archives, Gurindji history paintings, contemporary and historical prints and drawings and video installation.

A 148-page catalogue accompanies the exhibition.

Still in My Mind: Gurindji location, experience and visuality is an Artback NT Touring Exhibition curated by Brenda L Croft, produced in association with UNSW Galleries, UQ Art Museum and Karungkarni Art and Culture Aboriginal Corporation, with support from Visions of Australia, Australian Research Council Discovery Indigenous Award, National Institute for Experimental Arts, ARC Centre of Excellence for the Dynamics of Language and the Berndt research Foundation.

Moving forward while looking back: Exploring how Indigenous cultural tourism can support the processes and goals of Reconciliation in Australia

Abstract: This proposed research is positioned within a growing literature calling for a re-evaluation of the ways in which humanity is relating with our natural environments, as for the first time in history, the future of life on the planet is largely in human hands. The sharing of Indigenous worldviews associated with co-existence beliefs and practices is suggested as a possible means for promoting more sustainable human-nature relationships. One setting where Indigenous ecological knowledges may be expressed and transmitted, both within and across cultures to potentially diverse populations, that presents a suitable context for systematic investigation is Indigenous cultural tourism. Thus, this proposed research seeks to explore how tourism can align with its higher potentials and support the processes and goals of Reconciliation in Australia through facilitating cross-cultural contact and the sharing of Indigenous worldviews, cultures and histories. This proposed research adopts an Indigenist research approach with a grounded theory research design, the outcomes of which will contribute valuable understandings of how Indigenous cultural tourism can play a role in achieving a more equitable, just and sustainable Australia. 

Biography: Nikki has a background working in the non-for-profit sector as a drug and alcohol counsellor/educator in residential rehabilitation, justice and community settings. She completed her Bachelor of Psychological Science Honours at Charles Darwin University in 2018 where she undertook a research project exploring conceptualisations of Indigenous cultures and histories in popular songs in Australia. This Honours project along with her personal and professional experiences have shaped her research interests within community psychology; specifically, qualitative research at the intersections between national identity and social change.

Acknowledging Indigenous Diplomacy

Acknowledging Indigenous Diplomacy


Add to calendar

Presenter:  Greg Fry, Honorary Associate Professor, Asia-Pacific College of Diplomacy, Australian National University

Date: Feb 21, 2019

Time: 10:30am to 11:30am

Contact person:  Northern Institute
T: 08 8946 6854
E: thenortherninstitute@cdu.edu.au

Location:  Northern Institute, Yellow Building 1, Level 2, Room 48 (Savanna Room), Casuarina Campus, CDU

Target audience:  Open to the public - All Welcome - Please share

Abstract
The Uluru Statement from the Heart recommended makarrata as a diplomatic concept that could take reconciliation forward. The failure of the Australian Government to acknowledge this recommendation is emblematic of a more general lack of acknowledgement, on the part of dominant western knowledge systems, of the existence of ancient diplomatic systems and principles governing inter-group relations in indigenous Australia.

In this seminar Greg asks, firstly, why is there this is lack of acknowledgement of such an important social institution; secondly, why is it important to acknowledge its existence and effectiveness; and thirdly, what pathways could lead to greater acknowledgement of these ancient and effective diplomatic systems, and of their potential contemporary relevance to governance, conflict resolution, and reconciliation? 

The seminar will conclude with an outline of a proposed partnership between the Asia-Pacific College of Diplomacy at the ANU, and CDU’s College of Indigenous Futures, Arts & Society Yolŋu Studies area, aimed at contributing to such acknowledgment.

About Associate Professor Greg Fry

Greg Fry’s research focuses on the international politics of the South Pacific region, conflict and conflict resolution in the Pacific island states, and the politics of regional diplomacy. He is editor of Australia’s Regional Security, Contending Images of World Politics (with Jacinta O’Hagan), Intervention and State-Building in the Pacific (with Tarcisius Kabutaulaka) and The New Pacific Diplomacy, (with Sandra Tarte).
