Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islanders are gifted data managers. Oral histories are passed through an intricate web of ceremony and custom, with restrictions built in for those who shouldn’t or are not yet ready to access certain information. This process of management has kept people strong for millennia – knowing who should receive certain information, how and when. Wiradjuri poet and artist Jazz Money (how to make a basket) explores the unique and powerful position of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander knowledge systems in the conversation around data sovereignty.

This is a free event. Bookings are not required, however we recommend that you arrive early to avoid disappointment.
