We Need to Talk about Fire

Following the catastrophic climatic events of last summer Bundanon presents 'We Need to Talk about Fire', a series of conversations with speakers from across the community who will share Indigenous knowledge systems, stories of community action, healing initiatives and creative responses to find a way forward.

EXHIBITIONS IN THE HOMESTEAD

We Need to Talk about Fire

Three new exhibitions will be presented in Bundanon Homestead.

When No Birds Sing, Ruth Maddison

Photographer Ruth Maddison was caught in the vortex of the fires at Eden and recorded the drama of dark skies and the role of local evacuation centres. In the weeks after the fires, she was called on by friends and neighbours to document their resilience in rebuilding their homes. This exhibition is the new series of photographs captured by Maddison during this period.
