Time has flown by since our mind-blowing opening night for Boorun’s Canoe back in early July. I’d like to extend a massive thanks to the over 400 friends, family, and new friends who came and made sure the atmosphere was incredible. To see a great set of photos by James Henry from the night click here.
The Bunjilaka Aboriginal cultural centre have just uploaded this video of Steaphan Paton, Kimberley Moulton (gallery curator) and myself talking about the project which I’m stoked to be able to share.
We’ve also been lucky enough to have the project featured across a range of media so I thought I’d post a selection here.
- Kylie Northover from The Age interviewed us personally and wrote this thoughtful piece.
- Bec Manjra from Milk Magazine ran this generous feature article.
- The National Indigenous Times ran this piece.
- The Herald Sun ran this piece.
On the Radio:
- Richard Stubbs interviewed Steaphan and I in the studio on ABC 774 (available here).
- Gerard Callinan interviewed myself bright and early the morning after our opening night for ABC Gippsland (available here).
- Steaphan was interviwed on Melbourne’s favourite local radio RRR (download mp3 here).
If you haven’t yet made it to the exhibition it is still on and open to the public for another three months! (Until November 4 @ Melbourne Museum, Nicholson Street, Carlton). The exhibition showcases the canoe that the Mullett family made, 15 gigantic prints (1.6 metres in size!) spread across 40 metres of beautiful curving wall space and a short film made by Daybreak Films of the canoe launch at Lake Tyers.
