The Sea is Our History and Our Future

April 11, 2024

UQ Art Museum

Join Lisa Reihana and Mykaela Saunders, in conversation with Ellen Van Neerven, as they discuss their practices of storytelling around Indigenous histories and futures connected to the Great Ocean.

In her film GROUNDLOOP, Lisa Reihana imagines a future where the ocean is a superhighway – an everyday connector between Indigenous voyagers from Aotearoa New Zealand and Australia; while in Always Will Be, Mykaela Saunders imagines a future version of the Tweed and how the local Goori community might reassert sovereignty while practising creative, ancestrally approved ways of living with changing climates.

This conversation has been convened in collaboration with Ellen Van Neerven.

Program:
5:30pm: Complimentary refreshments available.
6:00pm: Conversation with Mykaela Saunders and Lisa Reihana chaired by Ellen Van Neerven.
7:00pm: Explore the exhibition How We Remember Tomorrow.
