Kamberra: Many Nations One Country

Kamberra: Many Nations One Country

‘Kamberra’ is a Ngunnawal word meaning ‘meeting place’. It’s a perfect representation for what the city has become, particularly in regard to the many First Nations Australians living here today. Kamberra: Many Nations One Country explores the diverse perspectives of First Nations Australian mob living in Canberra on Ngunnawal Country. It explores local Traditional Owners and their connections, as well as diverse communities who’ve lived here for years, decades and in some cases, generations. It explores the idea of how these many groups relate to Ngunnawal country, from all walks of life, through the lens of yarning, artwork, dance, poetry, music and so on.

Kamberra: Many Nations One Country is a new media exhibition celebrating the beauty of Ngunnawal and Ngambri Country, and the diversity of the peoples and cultures living there today. The collaboration was commissioned by Belco Arts and led by contributors Marissa McDowell and Lisa Fuller. Marissa is from the Wiradjuri Nation, Cowra NSW and has been living on Ngunnawal Country since 1984. Lisa Fuller is a Murri from Eidsvold QLD, who has been living on Ngunnawal Country since 2006.
