The Melbourne Engineering on Country focus group will be attending the following public free event about indigenising education and we're keen to follow it up with an EWB discussion afterwards from 8.15-9pm at the MPavilion. All welcome!

What does Indigenising education mean in the built environment? Should we learn about the Indigenous built environment and, if so, what should we learn, and when, how, why and from whom? Hear from current students, graduates, practitioners and educators about the past, present and possibilities for the future of education and its representation of Indigenous perspectives and realities.

MPavilion’s second annual BLAKitecture forum brings together Indigenous built environment practitioners on the Yaluk-ut Weelam land of the Boon Wurrung people. The forum aims to centralise Indigenous voices in conversations about architecture, the representation of histories, the present state and the future of our built environments. BLAKitecture is curated by MPavilion’s program consultant Sarah Lynn Rees.
