Yarn - Gunditjmara & The Baroque
Local Gunditjmara Elder, Aunty Claudette Lovett lead a unique event that brings the community an opportunity for a cultural journey.
'HG Yarn: Gunditjmara and the Baroque’ will see the respected community leader yarn for an hour in the 'Emerging From Darkness' exhibition space, sharing her unique perspective and opening up engaging dialogue on the themes of the exhibition.
Yarning is a practice that has been passed down through generations among Aboriginal communities to share knowledge, stories, and experiences. Yarns serve as a means of educating, connecting individuals, and preserving important knowledge and cultural practices.
The event welcomes open discussion about the themes presented in the exhibition, serving as a cultural bridge that invites attendees to engage with and learn from the wisdom of Gunditjmara people.
Conversation will drift openly from place to place as Aunty’s deep connection to the land and its history will illuminate our understanding of the exhibition’s context.
Tickets are $20 per person, $15 with access pricing or free for under 18’s and First Nations visitors, inclusive of exhibition entry.
