National Talkblack 150221

We had:

Russell Mullet, Gunaikurnai Land and Waters Aboriginal Corporation (GLaWAC) Reconciliation Action Plan Manager talking about how a study led by Monash University and the GLaWAC researchers have found food remains of Bogong moths on a stone tool in a cave in the foothills of the Australian Alps in Victoria. The findings provide insights into the antiquity of important Aboriginal dietary practices that have until now remained archaeologically invisible.

Tamara Whyte, Documentary Australian Foundation Centralised Indigenous Fellowship Inaugural Fellow and Northern Territory Filmmaker discussing how the call is out again for First Nations documentary makers in South Australia and the Northern territory with the launch of the second Centralised Indigenous Fellowship. The successful Fellow will receive a grant up to $30,000 towards professional and documentary project development, which can include mentorship, research and development, skills development and training, attendance at industry conferences, attachment to a relevant industry professional and more. In addition, they will receive up to $10,000 of in-kind support to attend training opportunities at the Australian Film television and Radio School.
