It is a privilege to work with Fernanda Adame, Aquatic Ecologist, as well as Sound Artist Leah Barclay and Walking/Media Artist James Cunningham on the Wetland Wander project.
We worked mainly in 2 areas, on Minjerribah (Stradbroke Island) and up North around Hinchinbrook Island, Ingham, Lucinda, incorporating knowledge from current and traditional landowners within Quandamooka (Moreton Bay), and Nywaigi, Gulgnay and Girramay countries (Queensland, Australia). Here are two interviews that you will find on the website http://wetlandwander.net that will be launched on 10 August 2018 at the exhibition opening on the Gold Coast.
What a great moment we had interviewing Joshua Walker, who took us on a fantastic walk focusing on wetlands medicinal plants and signs! One of the highlights for me was to meet Aunty Joan Hendricks who welcomed us to country and shared some time going to various wetlands. So much to learn from people who live in tune with country 🙂
We thank Traditional Owners from the lands from which this project’s material comes, especially the Nywaigi, Gulgnay and Girramay peoples of Northern Queensland & the Quandamooka peoples of Stradbroke Island. This project has been supported by the Queensland Government through the Advance Queensland Program for Engaging Science & an Advance Queensland Fellowship, & by Griffith University Queensland Conservatorium Research Centre. We also thank The Australian Rivers Institute at Griffith University & the Wetlands Program for their support.
