Artist-researcher Dr @jenraeis (Métis) and author @clairegcoleman (Noongar) are fascinated by DNA. 🧬 More specifically, they’re interested in the ways that intergenerational trauma and even climate change traumas are transferred over generations through our DNA.

Their intensive 1-week residency at Science Gallery Melbourne culminates in the performance-based forum 𝙄𝙣𝙚𝙧𝙩𝙞𝙖. Saturday May 14, hear from experts as they collectively ask “can we change the health of our future ancestors through our actions today?”

Almost 3,000 high school students across Victoria and NSW will hear from our eSTEAMed panel of experts as they share their career highs, lows and the bits in between.

We’ve also thrown in an exclusive tour of MENTAL (because apparently some people still haven’t seen MENTAL?)

Wurundjeri Elder Aunty Joy Murphy created an installation for the entrance of Emu Sky, paying homage to the namesake for Wurundjeri people: the manna gum.

Wurundjeri people’s intimate knowledge of Country extends from land to the water, and in the 2022 Yarra Strategic Plan, the community was deeply involved in creating a plan for the future management of the Birrarung (Yarra River).

The installation in Emu Sky highlights the significance of cultural knowledge and where it intersects with science, and shows us how urgent it is to listen to Traditional Owners, especially in urban areas.

Visit Emu Sky Tues-Fri, 10am-5pm, Sat 11am-5pm.

Uncle Badger Bates’ art often reflects the motifs, landforms, animals, plants and stories of Barkandji country and the interconnected ecosystems of the Barka (Darling River).

Uncle Badger is a staunch advocate for the Barka and has used his art practice to highlight the urgent attention needed to save this sacred river. For 21 years, he worked as an Aboriginal Sites Officer for New South Wales National Parks and Wildlife Service. Now retired, he is a full-time artist and cultural heritage consultant, producing artworks in a variety of media, including: linocut prints; wood, emu egg and stone carving; mosaics; and metalwork.

Today is #worldwaterday and we recognise and honour his activism to save the Barka. See his work in the exhibition Emu Sky, on view now at Old Quad.

In an article for The University of Melbourne Pursuit, Wiradjuri geographer and academic Associate Professor Michael-Shawn Fletcher said: “Various places in the landscape record information, and they are called natural archives, for example lake sediment, ocean floor, a stalactite, stalagmite, or tree rings. The natural archives that I look at are lakes."

Tuesday 22 March is #worldwaterday and we are taking a closer look at the exhibits in Emu Sky, an exhibition at Old Quad featuring over 30 Aboriginal community members and curated by Barkandji woman Zena Cumpston.

See 'Sediment Cores' in Old Quad, Tues-Fri 10am-5pm, Sat 11am-5pm.

@adham_faramawy is a London-based artist whose work explores issues of touch, embodiment and identity, using special effects drawn from advertising to evoke desire for people, things and experiences.

Adham's work was commissioned for GENDERS exhibition @scigallerylon and we couldn’t be more excited that 'Skin Flick' will travel to Science Gallery Melbourne and be presented during BREAKING THE BINARY next year!

In 'Skin Flick (Invasive Species)' Adham portrays bodies absorbing and interacting with chemicals such as beauty products, drugs, supplements and organic matter. The artist talks about their relationship with self-image, sexuality and gender over slick and slimy imagery, invoking and investigating ideas of gender fluidity.

This initiative is supported by the UK/Australia Season Patrons Board, the British Council and the Australian Government as part of the UK/Australia Season ‘Who are we now?’.

Last night I attended Heidi Everett’s production of Qualia presented at Science Gallery Melbourne It was a really insightful night, featuring film, theatre and a panel discussion on all things lived experience and mental health advocacy. The show explored nuanced lived realities of what it is like to encounter the psychiatric system - through the lens of a q***r person, and a person who is physically disabled. We saw behind the curtain for a moment to observe the realities of a broken system. After the show Maggie Toko & actors Andrew Lewis & Jess Cochrane Jess Cochran - Advocate engaged in a panel presentation facilitated by Heidi Everett on the challenges of the mental health system and our hopes for consumer led reform. There was a huge emphasis on the need to *listen more* and pursue a model of healing rather than curing/fixing people. ‘Treat me as a person first and a diagnosis second. Treat others as you would want to be treated.’ - Andy ‘We must have a future of intersectionality.’ - Maggie ‘If you are listening to people using those services, we sing a different tune. We don’t say the things that are in the textbooks. And they don’t hear us because they’ve already been trained out of it.’ - Jess I went home feeling really full, and grateful for solidarity and the diverse but unified voices of people who are fighting the good fight. I even managed to get a (long overdue) photo of Heidi and I after the show. Heidi has been a friend and mentor of mine for a number of years now, in the lived experience and arts based advocacy space. Qualia is a testament to her dedication in this field. Bravo. Image descriptions: Figure 1 depicts Heidi and I smiling at the camera. Heidi wears a coral shirt, has blonde bangs and stands beside Hannah who wears a blue dress and has long blonde hair. Heidi has sunglasses on her head and they stand in front of a grey stage curtain. Figure 2 is an image of three people seated in chairs and one person seated in a wheel chair. They are on a stage in the middle of conversation and the person in the wheelchair (Jess) is speaking. There are black curtains behind them.
