MTalks—BLAKitecture: Storytelling

Classes, Lessons, Workshops and Talks

17 Dec 2019

Our interpretation of the world we live in is communicated through stories and narratives. We can’t separate ourselves from these stories in the same way we can from data and science. This process of storytelling engenders empathy and equality with everything in our environment. This forum will explore these storytelling processes and speculate about how architecture, a form of storytelling in itself, can contribute to and work in harmony with Indigenous understandings of Country.

MPavilion’s third annual BLAKitecture forum brings together Indigenous built environment practitioners on the Yaluk-ut Weelam land of the Boon Wurrung people. The forum aims to centralise Indigenous voices in conversations about architecture, the representation of histories, the present state and the future of our built environments. BLAKitecture 2019/20 is co-curated by MPavilion’s program consultant Sarah Lynn Rees and Jack Mitchell.
