BETWEEN STORIES • TransCultural Conversations for Troubling Times

Monday 6th Dec - Friday 10th Dec, 2021 (AEST)

Eight leading voices from Australia’s First Peoples and North American cultural ecologist David Abram explore our place in the more-than-human world


DECEMBER 6 • 8 • 10

12.30-2.30pm AEDT (UTC+11)* on Zoom


We are human only in contact, and conviviality, with what is not human. – David Abram


This series of three online yarning circles will probe how our thinking and acting in the world is shaped by cultural understandings of language, place and time.

Australia’s First Peoples understand well that there exists no separation between humans and the more-than-human world – that humans, with all our culture and technology, remain fully embedded within, and participant with, an animate world that far exceeds all our knowing. Such insights also pulse at the heart of North American cultural ecologist David Abram’s work. His dialogues with Australian Indigenous thinkers will explore the convergences, and contrasts, between Western ecological ideas and Indigenous knowledges.

Our guests:

Mary Graham (Brisbane), Jakelin Troy (Sydney), Payi Linda Ford (Darwin), Lorina L. Barker (Armidale), Ross Timmulbar Williams (Cairns), Kevin Lowe (Sydney), Anne Poelina (Broome), Tyson Yunkaporta (Melbourne) and David Abram (New Mexico).


One registration is good for all three sessions – i.e. you don’t have to register for each session separately.

Videos of all sessions will be available online to registered participants when the series is over.





We acknowledge and honour the custodianship of this continent by Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples over countless generations. We respect their stories, traditions and living cultures and affirm that their lands and waters were never ceded to the British crown or its successors. We honour the elders of Australia’s First Peoples past, present and emerging.
