A new Indigenous-led design project, The Pathway: Building the Track will launch at UTS’s DAB LAB Research Gallery on Wednesday 7 March.
The Pathway: Building the Track, initiated by Land Alive is a media project that has been produced in two forms, as a DVD and an interactive i-pad application.
The project documents Gandangara Local Aboriginal Land Council (LALC) as it considers BioBanking on a Mill Creek site in Menai.
Mill Creek runs through rare bush land while sitting alongside one of the busiest roads in Sydney.
Despite the hard fought efforts of Land Council and Land Alive trainees, the area continues to suffer from huge amounts of illegal dumping and damaging 4WD and motorbike riding.
The Pathway offers expert opinions and insights into some of the challenges of looking after traditional lands in a modern city.
Collaboration Design and Country by Jacqueline Gothe is on show from Wednesday 7 – Friday 30 May 2012 at DAB LAB Research Gallery, University of Technology, Sydney. Building 6, Level 4 Courtyard, 702-730 Harris Street, Ultimo. Gallery Hours: Monday to Friday, 10am – 5pm.
The exhibition will be opened by Marcia Ella-Duncan from Land Alive, Jason De Santolo from UTS Jumbunna and Victor Steffensen from TKRP on Wednesday 7 March from 6-8pm.
A discussion about the design and collaborative process with several of The Pathway collaborators will be held at 5:30pm on Thursday 15 March.
