‘Songlining’ white spaces
Re-jigging Indigenous modes of cultural practice in art galleries and museums
Adjunct Professor Margo Neale
Senior Indigenous curator and researcher Margo Neale will discuss how art and history museums discharge their obligations to Indigenous people. This talk will explore methods of incorporating Indigenous ways of thinking and being into the structures and processes of museums of the 21st-century. How can Indigenous agency find a place of primacy in the governance structure of Museums? What can museums learn from the Songlines? A cutting edge cross-cultural collaborative and inter-disciplinary research project explores a new approach to the integration of Indigenous and western knowledge in managing our shared cultural environments.
