National Talkblack 171220

We had:

Helen Anu, Curator First Peoples Project at the Australian National Maritime Museum talking about the art of Alick Tipoti. Alick Tipoti is a renowned visual and performance artist, community leader, linguist and regional advocate from Badu in Zenadth Kes (Torres Strait). His elders named him Zugub, meaning Spiritual Ancestor, due to the spiritual encounters he experiences through his art practice.

Mark Ross, National Indigenous Music Awards Hall of Fame inductee and Gumbirrangarroo Dalanngarroo (Longest Time Right Now) Composer talking about his work and the 2021 Yellamundie Festival. Yellamundie Festival is the only Festival in Australia to identify, develop, and present new First Peoples stories for stage and has seen ten featured works go on to full production in Australia. Yellamundie is a Darug word meaning “storyteller”, and from 22-24 January 2021 for just $15, Sydneysiders can be the first to see brand-new developmental works and discover new First Peoples talent, from cutting-edge voices around the country.

Aunty Maureen Mossman, Aunty Jane Harris and Aunty Lynee Ireland joining Trendy Trev in the studio to talk about the history of Boopa-Werem Kindergarten and Pre-School. Boopa-Werem Kindergarten was begun 11 years ago by a group of Aborginal and Torres Strait Islander people who were concerned that the Aboriginal and Islander children were not using the existing facilities in Cairns and needed a place of their own to give their children that vital pre-school education.
