Young refugee adults learn about Aboriginal resilience and survival

Dr Lorina Barker talking with young adults from the Hunter region’s refugee cohort

In the spirit of public pedagogy, young adults belonging to the Hunter region’s refugee cohort, visited the University of Newcastle’s (UoN) Gallery to see the Looking Through Windows exhibition and learn about Aboriginal Australians who grew up and lived on the missions, reserves and fringe camps at places like Tibooburra, Bourke and Brewarrina.

Young men and women from culturally and linguistically diverse (CALD) backgrounds browsed the exhibition which uses different artistic mediums, including oral history, filmmaking, photography, music, performance, as a way of expressing history, culture and knowledge.
