The power that we have… Listen Up!
Film premiere and discussion: Monday 10 February 2020, 3- 4:30 PM
RMIT Building 80, Cinema, Level 1, Room 2
The power that we have… Listen Up! is a film series featuring Gina Bundle, Genevieve Grieves, and Paola Balla. In this film series, three strong Aboriginal women reflect on and discuss their experiences of community consultation and collaboration with non-Indigenous settler educators and organisations. With extensive experience in the arts community and research practice, each woman recounts their lived experience of ‘so called’ Aboriginal consultation and collaboration and how things can go wrong. Filmed as a series of beautiful portraits with a personal flavour, these women offer generous advice on how we can engage in decolonising practices better as we come to terms with Australia’s colonial past. This 90 minute session included facilitated discussion between the films.
These films have been developed as part of project led by Vicki Couzens with Marnie Badham and Jody Haines: “Revisiting the Possum Skin Cloaks: Community Stories and Social Impact” funded by RMIT’s Strategic Capability Development Fund and supported by CAST research group and the School of Art. Films created by artist, Jody Haines.
