Community Led Architecture: Rebuilding Culture on Minjerribah

This event has passed Register

Event description

You are invited to join us at the North Stradbroke Island Museum on Minjerribah for this panel conversation. Quandamooka artist Megan Cope will discuss the development of her Oyster Reef Project with her community of project collaborators. Together they will discuss how this experimental work realigns cultural responsibility with contemporary practice and highlights how art can heal Country in the waters of Minjerribah. 

This program has been moved offsite to support community access to this important project on Country, and for Country. Megan’s work reflecting this broader project Kinyingarra Guwinyanba  features in This language that is every stone alongside Australian and international artists addressing cultural continuation and synergies. Kinyingarra Guwinyanba  means ‘place of oyster rocks’ in Jandai and Gowar languages, and is a hand-built sculptural formation envisaged as a living work that will last for time immemorial.
