    THE 2018 SERVENTY MEMORIAL LECTURE|Dr Noel Nannup

    24 April, 7:30 pm9:30 pm

    Synergies: Living in a Land that Demands Movement

    Noongar people were able to survive in the South-West of WA because they moved as resources changed through the six seasons of the year. An understanding of Noongar culture is a valuable insight into the nature of this ancient land.

    Well-known and respected Noongar Elder Dr Noel Nannup is a story teller and cultural guide, instructor and mentor. He is Heritage Consultant with Indigenous Tours WA and Elder in Residence at Edith Cowan University. Noel will share his wisdom and understanding of culture and nature and discuss his collaboration with Professor Stephen Hopper in the landmark film Synergies: Walking Together – Belonging to Country. In the film, Dr Nannup and Professor Hopper explore the similarities between Noongar creation stories and western scientific understanding of nature, as they walk the length of the Swan River. Noel will discuss how over 60 000 years of Noongar knowledge shaped the movements of Indigenous people in the South-West and helped to conserve its wildlife.

    This is an evening not to be missed!

    DATE: Tuesday, 24 April at 7.30pm
    VENUE: Social Sciences Lecture Theatre, UWA.

    We’ve been here before

    An Evening in Conversation with Nyoongar Elder Dr Noel Nannup and Professor Fiona Stanley, mc’d by Professor Carmen Lawrence

    We find ourselves at a crossroads. ‘Business as usual’ is no longer sufficient to address the interconnected crises of rising inequality, climate change and an economic system that serves the few over people and planet. However, this isn’t the first time we have faced such complex issues.

    We have been here before, and luckily for us that means there is much to learn from the past – from an ancient Aboriginal Culture that has witnessed and adapted to climate change, to contemporary challenges and victories in the fields of public health, politics and social change.

    As a supporter of Climate Justice, we’d like to invite you to join Professor Fiona Stanley AC (the person not the building), Dr Noel Nannup (NAIDOC Western Australian Elder of the Year) and former WA Premier Professor Carmen Lawrence for a fascinating discussion exploring what we can learn from the past and how we can rise to the challenges of our time for a better future.
