Storytelling is at the heart of Indigenous knowledge systems, and the visualization of the data analysis is posited through Jennifer Mason's perspective as a Gourrmjanyuk woman of the Wemba Wamba Nation. Her research aims to take audiences on an immersive journey, gathering oral histories and experiencing culture, as she pieces together Wemba Wamba songlines and yumerraki (dreaming stories). Digital assets created from the project data, collected utilising a decolonised methodological approach, will populate the reimagined pre-contact geography, of the immersive experience.

This research contributes to a larger collective of knowledge that ultimately may be utilised to inform capacity building of culture and people for Wemba Wamba Traditional Owners and other Indigenous Nations in Australia.

This seminar will be in hybrid format, both in-person and online. Zoom details will be sent to individuals one they register via Eventbrite.
