In this discussion Senior Gija knowledge holders, Gija emerging leaders, and Warmun community members will talk about the two-way teaching program that they teach as part of the partnership between the Warmun Art Centre and the Grimwade Centre for Cultural Materials Conservation at the University of Melbourne.

Rusty Peters, Mabel Juli and Betty Carrington, with support from emerging Gija artists and community leaders, will share their thoughts on what curriculum is needed in a university that is committed to Indigenous teaching and learning, what specific knowledge they prioritize within their teaching program, and why it is essential that teaching be done on country around Warmun.
