Seminar on a different Australian history

Posted 20 Mar 2018 12:00PM

Join CCJP on Sunday 25 March 2018 for a revealing Sunday Seminar:

A Different Australian History:
Aboriginal agriculture, irrigation, architecture - maintaining a culture over millenia

Unfortunately Bruce Pascoe (pictured) is unable to come to the seminar. Instead we will have him speaking on the advertised topic on video on the large screen. We apologise for this unexpected change.

Bruce Pascoe is an Australian Indigenous writer, from the Bunurong clan, of the Kulin nation. His most recent work 'Dark Emu', winner of the 2016 NSW Premier's Literary Award, presents a radically different picture of Australia's original inhabitants. From the journals and records of early explorers and surveyors, Bruce has accumulated astonishing descriptions of a pre-colonial Aboriginal life and asks whether Australia's First Peoples were 'hunter-gatherers'.

Discounted copies of Bruce's award winning book 'Dark Emu' will be available to purchase at the seminar. (Payment by cash only.)

Date: Sunday 25 March 2018

Time: 10am - 12.30pm (morning tea and light lunch provided). There is no charge as this is the AGM.

Venue: Catherine McAuley Room, Mercy Congregational Centre, 4-6 Victoria Road, North Parramatta

Come along and bring friends. Parking available in the streets around, but not Victoria Road.
