A key member of the Reinvigorating the MECA Collection project, Yasunori Hayashi is passionate about learning and teaching Yolŋu languages, and particularly Yolŋu culture. “Impressed by the sound of yiḏaki (didgeridoo), I first visited Yurrwi (Milingimbi) in the early 2000s and learned to speak languages through the instrument, rather than playing!”.

Yasunori will discuss the recent filmed documentation process of the MECA Collection artworks with people from Milingimbi and Ramingining, and how it will be incorporated into teaching and research resources for Yolŋu Studies at CDU.
