Join us for an in-conversation with members of The Mulka Project who will be visiting Melbourne during Monash University Museum of Art (MUMA)’s international group exhibition Shapes of Knowledge (9 February – 13 April 2019), where they will present a cinema of works from the archive and discuss the collective and cross-generational qualities of their organisation.

The Mulka Project is a digital library and production centre that was established to sustain and protect Yolngu cultural knowledge and language under the leadership of community members. Located in Yirrkala in northeast Arnhem Land, it facilitates the production of audiovisual material and new-media artwork, along with repatriating valuable artworks, texts, images, sounds and videos of Yolngu culture.
