ART, CULTURE & EDUCATION: Rhoda Roberts in Conversation with Akala (UK) + Djon Mundine + Ellen van Neerven

On Wednesday 7 December, Rhoda Roberts AO will chair one of the most incendiary, dynamic discussions about the importance of art, culture, and education ever to come to the Northern Rivers.

Held at the brand new Park Lane Theatre in Lennox Community Centre, featuring four brilliant minds and cultural icons: Hip Hop artist, historian & activist Akala (UK), Bundjalung artist, curator & activist Djon Mundine OAM, and rising Indigenous literary star Ellen van Neerven, along with multi-talented and highly revered Roberts, this is a rare and exciting panel, and a conversation not to missed.

Raising money for Boomerang Festival, the panel will discuss the significance of culture and art as educational tools, and how education can be better delivered through art and culture. From African and Aboriginal perspectives, as well as historical and modern examples, the panel will surely cover the more controversial elements of these three topics, and share a wealth of collective knowledge you would otherwise never have the opportunity to receive.

Don’t miss this exceptional calibre of minds sharing their knowledge and opinions on how we can do things better as community, for the sake of future generations.

The event is open to all ages, however, please be advised there will be adult themes and potentially strong language used throughout the session. Parental supervision is advised for audience members under the age of 16.

‘Art, Culture & Education’ commences at 6pm, and will be followed by a Q&A session.
