Uncle Wes Marne is a 96-year-old Bigambul Elder and descendant of a long line of storytellers with a deep knowledge of Aboriginal culture. This storytelling event invites participants to engage in a deep listening exercise about place, land and Country.

The public program is a component of Common Knowledge and Learning Curves, the first Australian institutional solo exhibition by Keg de Souza, and stems from the artist’s ongoing interest in the ways we teach and learn. The exhibition seeks to break down hierarchies in typical knowledge exchange, exploring radical pedagogy and its tenets including democratic dialogue, lived experience, inquiry learning, solidarity and unlearning.
