Deep Culture: exploring the opportunities for Indigenous design

“From the Torres Strait, through the mainland, to further south and some of the islands off our country, there’s a rich range of expression, country, typographies, landscapes and environments, which inform the way we feel and connect to a place and I think this is where there is a real capacity to do something distinct and different.”

Jefa Greenaway is a Wailwan and Kamilaroi man from Melbourne. Jefa studied Architecture at Melbourne University and went on to be the first Indigenous Architect to be registered in Victoria. He is director of Greenaway Architects whose designs include RMIT University’s award-winning Ngarara Place.

This session is part of Inside Art and Architecture: A series of monthly talks to offer an engaging introduction to the often-hidden processes and worlds behind our built environment and artistic practice. Expand your knowledge of local architectural landmarks, explore sculptural creativity and engage in thought-provoking dialogue.
