This subject is designed to give students a solid basis from which to start engaging with Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander creative and cultural practices, with a focus on connection to country and place. Students will learn from a diversity of guest lecturers, including Indigenous elders, visual artists, theatre makers and activists. By engaging with First Nations perspectives, knowledges and artistic and cultural practices, students will reflect on their positionality in the context of the historical and contemporary impacts of colonisation, in particular in Victoria and the south-east of Australia.
