Ocean Talks: Aboriginal Perspectives of Sydney Harbour

–          Bamal Badu (earth & water), past, present & future cultural connections.

Australian National Maritime Museum

Tickets: Adult $35, Member $20, Student $20

How well do we really know the history of Sydney Harbour? Four leading Aboriginal art and cultural practitioners 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.

BAMAL BADU

The words bamal (earth) and badu (waters) were provided by the Metropolitan Aboriginal Land Council.

View incredible 3D virtual worldscapes that represent pre-colonisation landforms showing the developing story of Sydney and her harbour from traditional Indigenous owners to the Sydney we know today. Meet the creators of Virtual Warrane II: Sacred Tracks of the Gadigal, an exhibit at Customs House in Circular Quay that gives a life-like virtual experience of the Sydney Cove area in an accurate recreation of the landscape and the lifestyle of the Gadigal people before 1787.
