MUMA Podcast

A short series of conversations with artists and contributors developed as part of exhibitions at MUMA.

Season 1: Tree Telling

Tree Telling is a podcast in four episodes that has been developed as part of the MUMA exhibition Tree Story. Tree Telling features the voices of artists, authors and academics, who—through conversations, readings and sound—share the ways in which their work and research is deeply intertwined with trees. Tree Telling traverses Indigenous ecological knowledge and connection with Country and how we might learn from this; climate change and climate fiction; the concept of plant blindness; and the deeply personal connections that individuals can forge with trees.

Our thanks to Eucalypt Australia for partnering with us on Tree telling.
