20 August 2018 - 14 December 2018

Exhibition Launch: 17 August 2018, 4.00pm to 6.00pm

This exhibition provides an insight into the significance of traditional Indigenous song, dance and contemporary cultural performance. Hear from Aboriginal performers talking about the importance of songs and how knowledge is passed from one generation to another.

The UQ Anthropology Museum has partnered with the Queensland Performing Arts Centre (QPAC) to tell the story of Clancestry – a celebration of country, and showcase the diversity of Indigenous performance in south-east Queensland. In this exhibition, local Aboriginal performers discuss how they have learnt songs and other aspects of culture, along with the importance of ensuring younger generations learn these traditions.

A University of Queensland Anthropology Museum exhibition in partnership with QPAC.

Curated by Michael Aird, Fred Leone and Amelia Radke. Featuring photography and film by Mick Richards.
