LEARNING FROM COUNTRY: Education from Country

Rare Books Library, Level 2, Fisher Library, University of Sydney


Free public event, but click on the link to book, to ensure entry to the library.

Thursday 25 May | 6–7:30pm 

Have you ever thought about learning from Country — from the very land on which you walk? Can this sort of learning be done in the city? And can it be done by all of us, whatever our cultural background? 

Author Nadia Wheatley and artist Ken Searle will discuss this inspirational way of learning in conversation with Professor Robyn Ewing AM, Sydney School of Education and Social Work.

This is also an opportunity to visit the exhibition of original artwork showcasing the journey behind six award-winning books produced by Nadia Wheatley and Ken Searle — from The Papunya School Book of Country and History to Australians All.
