Teila Watson on What’s Not in the Past

When

What are the connections and causes of genocide and ecocide in so called “australia”? This is one of the pressing questions raised in Teila Watson’s essay The Intrinsic Connections between Ecocide and Genocide. Join us for a discussion on the importance of truth telling, ecological and social governance, and disabling white supremacy within climate change discussions.

The  Di Gribble Argument 2021 is a full day of events held at the Malthouse Outdoor Stage featuring a broad range of First Nations speakers discussing and reflecting on the ideas raised in essays by authors Bruce Pascoe and Victor Steffensen and writer, poet, singer and performer, Teila Watson. Through panels, performance and music, the events and  essays will encourage multi-generational public dialogue that empowers individuals to engage with environmental action.
