Ocean Talks: Aboriginal Perspectives of Sydney Harbour

Panorama of Sydney Harbour 2015 (City of Sydney)

How well do we really know the history of Sydney Harbour? Four leading Aboriginal art and cultural practitioners – Shane Phillips, Nadeena Dixon, Emily McDaniel and Brett Leavy   – share the stories of Sydney Harbour as you’ve never seen or heard them before. These fascinating speakers will discuss the varieties of ways they use to interpret Sydney Harbour’s rich Aboriginal history and the cultural connections still thriving today.

A highlight of the evening will be a demonstration of incredible 3D virtual worldscapes showing intricate digital mapping of Sydney Harbour’s pre-colonisation landforms and its developing story from traditional Aboriginal owners to the Sydney we know today.

Join in a vibrant panel discussion of insights into the first fully-Aboriginal-operated circumnavigation of Australia, maintaining cultural legacies, Aboriginal digital mapping and sharing cultural voices through art.
