3 consecutive TUESDAY nights 6-8pm 5, 12, 19 March

Cost is $120 for 6 hours and 50% of this will pay the rent on Country. Participants are invited to bring their preferred pencils/crayons/pens

The workshop will be conducted by Dr. Shannon Woodcock, who has twenty years experience in the field of genocide studies. Shannon has used cognitive mapping as a tool to explore the past with both survivors and perpetrators of genocide, and has been a post-doctoral researcher at the United States Holocaust Memorial Museum and worked at the University of Tirana, Albania, and La Trobe University. The questions we will discuss in this workshop include the following. What do we know of how settlers committed and commit genocide across countries? How are we haunted by these histories? Where do the ghosts of our colonial ancestors appear and how do we respond to them? What does it mean to 'settle' on country where our sovereignty nests within the unceded sovereignty of First Nations people?
