Event description

Description

Meet the artists and cultural facilitators for the creation of the public artwork Navigating Culture. The art work explores overlapping and shared knowledge systems of linguistics and astrological observations between Aboriginal and European cultures. Members of the creative team Joel Davidson, Belinda Plummer and Nardi Simpson will share the community and creative process involved in making the work. This is followed by a sharing of Sydney Language in a workshop led by language and cultural educator Joel Davidson.

Navigating Culture is located on the Marrickville Library building on the corner of Marrickville and Lilydale Roads.

Joel Davison is a Gadigal man. He is a language and culture educator. Joel believes that language is a strong component of a wholesome understanding of Aboriginal culture, heritage and history.

Nardi Simpson is a Yuwaalaraay woman. Nardi is a musician, storyteller and educator with ongoing experience in workshops and opportunities that share and maintain her culture and language.

Belinda Smith is a public artist whose practice is based on curiosity and research. She produces works that explore anthropology and environment to create site specific artworks - to deepen community connection to place and to encourage a greater compassion for environment and culture.
