“Art can speak a different narrative over Aboriginal people, compared to what’s been spoken about us by others”

I spoke with Narelle Urquhart, brilliant Aboriginal artist and Indigenous Cultural Support Officer at Bond University. We discuss her emergence as an artist, her faith, what she hopes to capture with her work, the ongoing inequality that Aboriginal people face, working with young people, and the celebration of culture. Check out her work online (a quick google search will get you there).

This is the first interview as part of a series with different people who work with, for, or are attached to Ganggalah (a church, ministry, and Aboriginal arts hub/trainer) – check them out here
