I am giving a workshop in Melbourne, along with Baganan, for the Urban Seed community, entitled “Living on Aboriginal Land”
“Living on Aboriginal Land”
A workshop with Baganan Kurityityin Theresa Creed and John Tracey
This workshop challenges non-Aboriginal participants to explore the relevance of concepts such as land rights, native title, sovereignty, reconciliation, treaty, self-determination, Aboriginal deaths in custody, customary law, traditional owner etc. to their own life on this country.
It explores ways in which non-Aboriginal people can support Aboriginal Australia.
The workshop offers no easy answers, only difficult questions.
6pm, Tuesday November 25th
@ “The Den” 116 Little Bourke St. Melbourne
(between Russell St. And Exhibition St. on the north side of the street)

The following is a list of links to things that I will be referring to in my talk, so that participants can explore the issues further.
