Indigenous Water

The innovative Repairing Memory & Place: An Indigenous-led approach to urban water design research project received Australian Research Council funding in 2021, to integrate Indigenous ways of knowing with urban water management. The project aims to provide significant benefits by enabling the repair of ecological and cultural memory of place and enabling government agencies to apply Indigenous practices to everyday management of urban water towards a more sustainable water future.

The project is supported by an interdisciplinary team from Monash University, Melbourne Water, Museums Victoria, Bayside City Council, City of Port Phillip, and Boon Wurrung Foundation, and will sit within Monash University's Faculty, Wominjeka Djeembana Lab.
