by BUSH gallery

Dachinta Centre for Research and Learning/Bush University


This is a site/ation of Denendeh lands on BUSH gallery mishnds.

Bush University reaches us, at BUSH gallery, as a twin spirit. Together these two entities reimagine the ancient tools created for our use by ancestors.

This reimagining enables. This reimagining shapes our shared futures.

We look to the land to support our practice. A space of possibility and risk. This bringing our current experience of learning from western institutions to/back on the land. Practicing this art on the land. We honour our original makers/thinkers. The history of innovation, often referred to as survival, continues to transform our realities. This keeps us connected to future ancestors. It is something beyond colonial and decolonial.
