15.1.20 | stories from the contact zone

Which stories have helped perpetuate colonial injustice in Australia? Which ones might bear witness to “an epic dialogue that exists beyond colonialism” (Ali Cobby Eckermann)?

tl_files/content/MKC/content/MKC-Flyer/contact zone-web.jpg
The white settler culture in Australia has often imagined that the colonization of the continent ended with the 19th century. Generations of European migrants to Australia have tried to live inside this story, and so have their descendants. But the colonial mentality shuts itself off from the stories of First Nations people in Australia, who tell of colonization as a continuing injustice, and of survival despite it. And it also ignores the stories of the other communities that the dominant white society has shunned.

SKB member Marc Hiatt was born into a white settler family, one of those occupying Kulin country in Australia’s south-east. He will talk about the colonial culture in Australia and a few of the stories it has failed to appreciate.
