Elisa Jane Carmichael has curated an evening to celebrate saltwater resources through gathering, feasting, storytelling, yarning, and weaving. Carmichael is Ngugi woman from Quandamooka Country (Moreton/Moorgumpin and Stradbroke Island/Minjerribah, Queensland), whose practice draws inspiration from her cultural identity and heritage to preserve her connection to the sand and sea (Yoolooburrabee).

We welcome you to partake in the ritual of feasting, and gather to taste and share foods of Quandamooka Country. Whilst feasting and yarning, you will a weave a collaborative ghost net using ropes from discarded sea debris, using traditional loops and knots to form fishing nets.

This gathering will be a space for sharing food, culture and stories. Bring your own saltwater stories to share and hear from Uncle Bob Andersen, Ngugi elder of Moreton Island (Moorgumpin) and senior member of the North Stradbroke Island (Minjerribah) community.

This celebration will be in the spirit of NAIDOC’s week and the 2018 theme ‘Because of her, we can!’
