Event description
Learn how Aboriginal design principles, refined over many millennia, are now being applied to contemporary practices.

About this event

Aboriginal design is of a distinctly cultural nature, based in the Dreaming and in ancient practices grounded in Country. It is visible in the aerodynamic boomerang, the ingenious design of fish traps and the precise layouts of community settlements that strengthen social cohesion. Authors Alison Page and Paul Memmott show how these design principles of sophisticated function, sustainability and storytelling, refined over many millennia are now being applied to contemporary practices.

The First Knowledges series offers an introduction to Indigenous knowledges with each book a collaboration between Indigenous and non-Indigenous writers, edited by Margo Neale (National Museum of Australia).
