Marking the opening of Wurrdha Marra at The Ian Potter Centre: NGV Australia, the NGV presents the inaugural Wurrhda Marra Conversation, an annual event exploring important issues facing First Nations communities and featuring First Nations voices who are leading contemporary discourse.
The event, titled Wurrdha Marra (meaning ‘Many Mobs’ in the Wurundjeri Woi Wurrung language), will be hosted by journalist, broadcaster and author Daniel Browning, and invites important reflection on the value of strengths-based storytelling and First Nations knowledge systems.
Panellists include Common Ground CEO Rona Glyn-McDonald and artists Kent Morris and Keemon Williams, whose works are on display in Wurrdha Marra.
The event includes an opportunity to view the exhibition from 5.30 – 7pm.
