Talk

Mining, Land, Community

Debate the highly charged and divisive topic of mining culture in Australia in this discussion event, exploring the positive and negative impacts of the mining industry on indigenous communities in Australia.

Join co-curator of Embedded: Craig Walsh, Judith Blackall and MCA curator of ATSI programs, Keith Munro, with special guests Ron Critchley, Chief Executive Officer of Murujuga Aboriginal Corporation (MAC), Jeffrey Lee AM and others in what is sure to be a lively conversation. Jeffrey Lee is a Djok clan member and senior custodian of land in Kakadu where there is a multi-billion dollar Koongarra uranium deposit, which he has campaigned and recently achieved success in protecting from mining interests into the future.
