String Workshop with Rhoda Roberts AO
Interactive truth telling exploring histories of the Bundjalung homelands, connection to country, and First Nations philosophy
ABOUT THE WORKSHOP
This is six season country, where everything is interconnected. Culture runs through the veins of Rhoda Roberts AO, a Widjabul Wia:bul woman, who is ever mindful of the fragility, unpredictability and strength of the Bundjalung homelands we all cherish. But sometimes the truth can be hard to hear.
Come and join her in an interactive workshop which will take you through the passages of time – walking in the footsteps of the old people, learning of the language groups and neighbouring clans, listening to the seasonal changes – the time of a past that disrupted country, our shared history and why connecting in 2023 is so important.
