The City Presents: Wadawurrung landscapes, living spaces and built environment

Thu 19 March, 6:30pm - 8:00pm
Presented By:
City of Greater Geelong
Geelong Library & Heritage Centre, 51 Little Malop Street, Geelong

Anthropologist Heather Threadgold and Melinda Kennedy, Wadawurrung woman will discuss Wadawurrung landscapes, living spaces and the built environment.

Wadawurrung landscapes, living spaces and built environment.

A combination of cultural knowledge and the historical layers of our built environment presents a hidden landscape that is visible and, at times, has been utilised in parallel practices.

Wadawurrung Traditional Owner Melinda Kennedy and anthropologist Heather Threadgold discuss Geelong’s contemporary cityscape through a cultural lens, unravelling Wadawurrung landscapes. Rather than looking to the future, they turn to the past to pursue a yearning for connection to land, water and tangible evidence of Wadawurrung Country – Djillang – the place we call home.
