Country’s voice is loud and clear: are designers listening? Part 1. With Kat Rodwell and Hannah Galloway
Are you ready for an 'Epic Yarn'?
Listening lies at the heart of so much of what designers do, but listening to what Country and Culture is telling us means connecting deeply and meaningfully with the land and its people.
How well are designers — and organisations, individuals and communities — listening to these voices?
Together with Landscape Architect Hannah Galloway, we wanted to explore the topic of ‘Listening’ with First Nations Consultant, Cultural Advisor and Storyteller Kat Rodwell.
In Part 1 of this 'Epic Yarn', Kat and Hannah discuss the‘eggshells’ of engagement — the role of understanding that each project, situation and engagement is a unique opportunity to understand the land from the beginning. They explore the nuances of cultural protocol and etiquette, and the systems of Country that still speak loudly — even in crowded city centres — if we stop to listen.
This episode is a must-listen for anyone wanting to deepen their understanding and to recalibrate how they listen to the voices of Country and Culture. In it, you'll hear the practical ways that individuals and organisations can better connect, support, and learn.
