Taking the Next Steps: Episode 4

A travelling art work created by the Sydney region TAFE NSW Student Association to recognise Sorry Day and National Reconciliation Week. People are invited to take part by adding their thumb print to the canvas.

Thanks for joining us for part 4 of a series recognising Sorry Day and National Reconciliation Week 2017.

In today’s podcast Certificate 4 Journalism students Belinda Palmada, Genevieve Doyle and Tatiana Pak discuss with artist and teacher Chico Monks the importance of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander art as a form of cultural expression and connection to past and present.

Eora’s annual Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Cultural Arts Exhibition opens next week – you can find more info on their Facebook events page here.

Thanks and respect to Chico, to Director of Eora College Danny Allende, and to all of our hosts at Eora TAFE.

We would like to offer our respect and appreciation to the Gadigal people of the Eora Nation, and also thank our brothers and sisters at Eora College for so generously offering us their wisdom and knowledge and for telling us their stories, many of which are so painful to relate.
