Manggan: Gather, Gathers, Gathering
The Manggan project has been in development for over six years and has had a number of manifestations, including a film and exhibition. It has culminated here in a gathering together of ideas, knowledge, conversations, people, venues, artworks and objects which will, on its extensive journey across Australia, gather together more people, organisations, ideas and conversations.
Connection to country and traditional culture is at the core of this project, which is aimed at growing awareness of a unique group of Aboriginal people in the wet and dry tropics region of Far North Queensland. The land and sea environment of this area incorporates the coastal rainforest fringe, floodplains, freshwater streams and rivers, tropical islands, mangrove eco-systems, dense mountain jungle and well-watered open savannah plains in the rain-shadow of the Great Dividing Range. Aboriginal people drew on the environment for the raw materials with which to create the tools and weapons they used for daily living and protection.
