Closing out 2018 with Elders and community gathering at UNE

Posted: December 12, 2018 in Uncategorized

We’re finishing up work for 2018, with the final event of Looking Through Windows project – an elders and community gathering on the lawns of Booloominbah at the University of New England.

It’s been an extraordinary 2 years of work lead by Dr Lorina Barker listening to and recording the stories of the people of far western NSW and New England whose lives and those of their families were affected by the policies of forced removal and dispossession, of life on the reserves and missions.

SVM and the team have shot hundreds of hours of video; thousands of photographs; recorded hours of audio interviews; and created dozens of artworks to record and give expression to the experience of remembering, gathering and sharing.

We close out the year celebrating our work and the people we’ve had the privilege to spend time with at the numerous workshops and gatherings in Bourke, Brewarrina, Guyra, Tingha and Armidale; three major public exhibitions and seminars and conference presentations.

Several short films will now be edited/produced in the new to summarise the work of the project.

Meantime the old humpy goes up one last time!
