Garnkiny – Constellations of Meaning – curator talk

Anna Crane, co-curator of Garnkiny: Constellations of Meaning, examines how the works in this exhibition explore the rich and significant story Garnkiny Ngarranggarni (Moon Dreaming). This talk explores some ideas about how Dreaming stories work as ways of being, sharing, teaching, regulating and creating in Gija society and by extension in cross- cultural encounters in Australia to which stories have become central. Anna Crane has worked with Gija people on language and culture projects since 2005. She is joined by linguist Frances Kofod.
