The Law is in the Land is a mini-symposium intended to provide the opportunity for exploring and experiencing multiple ways of knowing and relating to natural environments and their governance implications.

The mini-symposium also includes the screening of Veins of the Country– A film on the vitality of a Kimberley River by Mervyn Street and Sarah Laborde. This is a 5-minute film about the Fitzroy River as it flows through the countries of several language groups in the Kimberley Region of Western Australia. In the film, Mervyn uses his art and storytelling ability to talk about the rhythms of water and life in the catchment, and the social connections mediated by river flows.

The screening of the multi-award winning film ‘Heart of Sky, Heart of Earth’ by Sandig and Black on February 13th is a satellite event open to the public and an official introduction to the themes of this one-day symposium.

This event is a closed symposium. For more information please contact Monica Gagliano (monica.gagliano@sydney.edu.au).
