Australian Indigenous climate activists and artists come together to decolonise contemporary narratives and responses to climate change.

HOST

Nayuka Gorrie is a Kurnai/Gunai, Gunditjmara, Wiradjuri and Yorta Yorta woman. She is passionate about climate justice, the rights of women and the self-determination of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people.

SPEAKERS

SEED is Australia’s first Indigenous youth climate network who are building a movement of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander young people for climate justice with the Australian Youth Climate Coalition. Their vision is for a just and sustainable future with strong cultures and communities, powered by renewable energy.

Hannah Donnelly is a Wiradjuri woman from New South Wales who grew up on Gamilaroi country in Tingha and Inverell. She is the creator of the Sovereign Trax music blog, which aims to foreground the creation and consumption of Indigenous music ‘through our own paradigms that speak to collective stories, identities and resistance’. Hannah is also the co-editor of the Sovereign Apocalypse. Her writing experiments with speculative fiction and future imaginings of Indigenous responses to climate change.

This is an Auslan interpreted program.

Supported by program patrons Maureen Wheeler AO and Tony Wheeler AO.
