Tree School: Embodied Conversations

Thursday 11 – Tuesday 23 March 2021
MADA Gallery

Enter MADA Gallery to experience Tree School: Embodied Conversations. Held on the hour on selected days, Embodied Conversations is a self-guided program within The Tree School that invites visitors to settle in the space and pause, to consider and embody the question provided. These questions have been drawn from conversations between The Tree School working group and consider issues of sustainability, decolonising, disruption and learning. Tree School: Embodied Conversations is a time to sit, engage with Country and reflect upon answers to critical and timely questions.

Conceived by architects Sandi Hilal and Alessandro Petti, and coordinated by Yorta Yorta and Wurundjeri-Woiwurrung artist, organiser and educator Moorina Bonini, The Tree School curriculum in Melbourne has been developed in dialogue with N’arweet Dr Carolyn Briggs AM and Dr Brian Martin of the Wominjeka Djeembana Indigenous Research Lab at Monash University, and colleagues from the Monash Sustainable Development Institute, Monash Science, Monash Education and Monash Art Design & Architecture, including Mark Romei.

This conversation has been supported by Curatorial Practice at Monash University.
