Living in Harmony An Indigenous Perspective
Come along for an enlightening talk about how today's society can benefit from Indigenous ideas and philosophies.

Join artist and curator Djon Mundine OAM for a special evening delving into alternate perspectives of what it is to live a harmonious life. Too often modern society bulldozes the harmony that exists between humans and the natural environment. Can society instead work in tune with nature, rather than against it? Is this a relationship that can be sustained? Bookings essential.
