Songlines panel discussion

Thursday 16 November 2017, 6–7.30pm (sold out)

The Songlines: Tracking the Seven Sisters exhibition asks the big questions: What are songlines? How do they work? Why are they significant to Aboriginal people today? Are they relevant to Australian history and identity?

Join ABC RN presenter Paul Barclay and special guests as they discuss why songlines are epic stories belonging to the tradition of grand human narratives. Panel members will include:

  • Margo Neale, Senior Curator, Songlines: Tracking the Seven Sisters
  • Scott Rankin, theatre director, writer and creative director of social change company Big hART
  • Alison Page, Indigenous scholar and designer
  • Curtis Taylor, filmmaker, screen artist and young Martu leader

Light refreshments will be served prior to the panel discussion
