On this week’s episode of Women on the Line we chat with Zena Cumpston, a Barkandji woman who has curated the exhibition ‘Emu Sky’ currently being shown at Melbourne University. The exhibition brings together numerous Aboriginal artists and knowledge keepers to explore Aboriginal perspectives related to science, innovation, plant use, land management and agricultural practices. 

Emu Sky is currently being exhibited, with free entry, at the Old Quad building at Melbourne University from now until Sunday 21 August 2022. Visit the Emu Sky website for more information.
