The second weekend of Breakfast Club begins with a special Blak Wave event hosted by Rachael Maza. When it comes to cross-cultural relations, Australia musters a B minus. Often less. Cultural misunderstandings continue, yet an exciting new wave of Indigenous stories, ideas and perspectives is readily available on our screens and in our cities’ cultural programming. So as we strive for progress, the skill of listening – quietly, openly and generously – is more critical than ever. How do you listen?
Featuring guests Emily McDaniel (Assistant Curator of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Art at the Art Gallery of New South Wales) and Lorna Munro (Tiddas Take Back).
Start your weekends with big ideas, breakfast by Yoghurt Culture and coffee from Small Batch by donation.
