The CAUL Hub was proud to have worked with guest editor Kirstine Wallis on the latest issue of its newsletter – Urban Beat. Kirstine is a Yorta Yorta/Palawa woman of many talents: Landscape Architect, artist, and member of the Hub’s Indigenous Advisory Group.
Reflecting on the theme Always Was, Always Will Be, this edition shares stories of First Nations’ voices in the areas of science, art and urban culture. You’ll read about the journey to create an Indigenous seasonal calendar for Sydney, an upcoming exhibition illuminating Aboriginal perspectives of plant use and agriculture practice, and one of the fastest growing forms of pollution in Australia – light pollution.
Kirstine’s vision was to create an issue that you can not only learn from, but actively engage with. You’ll find artwork to colour in, a game of bingo that we can all relate to in these challenging times, and a powerful poem inspired by the summer bushfires. Find the latest issue, here.
