Beyond Decolonisation: From Resistance to Consciousness
Lydia Fairhall is a Worimi woman of many talents. In addition to being Executive Producer for ILBIJERRI Theatre Company, the longest running First Nations theatre company in Australia, Lydia is a singer/songwriter, freelance writer, film producer, festival curator and mother of two.
A deep thinker and feeler, Lydia’s biggest and possibly most testing act of courage yet is “to find peace, despite external conditions and intergenerational trauma, to practice nurturing, to shine a light on a deep love for humanity and to practice a radical self-care and care of people and country as a form of peaceful resistance and alignment”. Join us as Lydia shares her reflections on courage, power, resistance and consciousness in contemporary Australia, a country with a black history and also a “black soul and a black future”.
The Weekly Service is a crafted experience of storytelling, reflection, discussion, music and tea, which is designed to help us slow down and reconnect. Each week centres around a different theme and storyteller, curated by a member of the community. This week's service is curated by Laura Grant.
This service is made in collaboration with our friends at Dumbo Feather, creating an experience around their current issue on the theme of ‘Courage’.
