You are invited to join the Institute of Modern Art at the North Stradbroke Island Museum on Minjerribah for this panel conversation.

Quandamooka-artist Megan Cope will discuss the development of her Oyster Reef Project with her community of project collaborators. Together they will discuss how this experimental work realigns cultural responsibility with contemporary practice and highlights how art can heal Country in the waters of Minjerribah.

Megan’s work Kinyingarra Guwinyanba reflects on Country and features in This language that is every stone alongside Australian and international artists addressing cultural continuation and synergies. Kinyingarra Guwinyanba means “place of oyster rocks” in Jandai and Gowar languages, and is a hand-built sculptural formation envisaged as a living work that will last for time immemorial.
