    Event description

    Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people hold a 60,000 year old legacy of traditional knowledge and cultural expressions. This knowledge includes ecological knowledge, medicinal knowledge, environmental management knowledge as well as cultural and spiritual knowledge. Indigenous Cultural and Intellectual Property refers to the rights that Indigenous people have to protect their traditional arts, culture and knowledge.

    Ethos: Indigenous IP is an opportunity to explore aspects of intellectual property from different perspectives. Thinking about the use of native foods provides a way to consider consultation, consent and fair commercialisation. Experience an Australian native food tasting by Warndu's Rebecca Sullivan and Damien Coulthard, and hear from Michael Watkins and Dr Susan Semple, facilitated by Dr Debbie Devis, as they unpack some of the key issues around the use of traditional knowledges.

    Free event, with one complimentary drink on arrival.
