Stories of belonging 

Presented by Sistas holding space

black and white artivist women embody ancestry and place  

Ever wondered who you really are? Where’s your mob from? Where are your roots? Where do you belong?

Hear, see, and feel embodied stories of ancestry and place. Black and white Australian women artivists together provoke resonant and entangled understandings of belonging and displacement through storied artworks, performances and installations.

Artworks created by eight artist/researchers that trouble belonging in the colonial nation Australia will be brought to life through performed storying. Exhibition directors (Tracey Bunda and Louise Phillips) will introduce the exhibition (that stems from their book Research through, with and as storying), then the audience will be guided to move through and engage with performative encounters of the installations.

Artist/researchers: Tracey Bunda (Ngugi and Wakka Wakka woman), Ngioka Bunda-Heath (Ngugi, Wakka Wakka and Birupi woman), Anjelena Parfitt (Eastern Arrernte woman), Robyn Heckenberg (Wiradjuri woman), Ali Black, Lexi Lasczik (Australian Hungarian woman), Louise Phillips, Kim Snepvangers.
Additional performers: Joshua Twee, Nicola Sabotino, Alice Owen, Deanna Borland-Sentinella

Event supported by The University of Queensland and the University of Southern Queensland.
