Panel discussion Speakers: Brenda L Croft, Felicity Meakins, Leah Leaman, Maurie Ryan Japarta, Lea Gardam and Jared Thomas (MC)

Performer: 2019 NT NAIDOC Artist of the Year and Gurindji-associated community member Les Huddleston.

The Still in My Mind: Gurindji location, experience and visuality exhibition was showcased at the South Australian Museum as a part of Tarnanthi: Festival of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Arts 2019

Brenda Croft’s work as an artist, curator and creative-led researcher - combining visual representation and theoretical methods - highlights complex concepts of community and connection to Country, and challenges the context of a single geographical location denoting ‘home.’ 

The exhibition can be interpreted through three broad themes: Art and identity; Art and social history; Art and storytelling encompassing Aboriginal activism, Stolen Generations, unwritten histories and exhibitions as storytelling. For an overview please visit
