Drawing together scientists, architects, historians and artists To see ourselves as part of something larger considers how we might understand our place within complex ecosystems, be these nature reserves or the streets where we live. The symposium centres on the ways that visual arts and design can build meaningful recognition of Aboriginal sovereignty; compassion for the more than human world; and strengthen our connections to country.
