Opening of Notions of Country by Djambawa Marawili AM.

people in Art Gallery people in Art Gallery After speaking of the role of painting on the body and on bark, Djambawa sang a walk through the paintings and poles in the gallery. Bark paintings have long been used in land title negotiations. Djambawa was involved in the preparation of paintings (as documents) for the Barunga Statement (1988) and Blue Mud Bay case (2008) He is also a member of the PM's Indigenous Advisory Council.

Martin Pearson + Barbara Sanders @ The Dog
Sat 25th November, 7.40 for 8pm

Martin is back for his annual appearance @ The Dog taking the spot normally filled by the late & much lamented Danny Spooner. As Martin said since I seem to have acquired a grey beard, I'm going to spread the rumour that Danny left it to me in his will. hehe

Of course no one can replace Danny, so Martin will do his usual material & will have you rolling in the aisles and then throw in something serious when you least expect it with songs about anything from Hobbits to Japanese whaling.

support from Barbara Sanders

Barbara has sung all her life singing silly songs her father taught her, bastardising the school anthem and then getting serious by toying idly with the classical repertoire. In the late 90s and early naughties she focussed on cappella singing in groups such as Vox Humana and Echolalia until a busy life intervened. In the last few years she has trod the boards of musical theatre but recently found herself back at the folk hearth. She sings folk songs from England, Ireland and the US including some of enchanting beauty. Come along for a lot of fun!

Parramatta Road Urban Renewal

Parramatta Road has been divided into Precincts: Granville, Auburn, Homebush, Burwood-Concord, Kings Bay, Taverners Hill, Leichhardt, Camperdown connected by Frame Areas.

"The Frame Areas are important connections between Precincts and will contribute towards the transformation of the Corridor. While not the focus of growth in the Strategy, land use change and development may still occur over the longer term through 'spot rezonings' or changes to development controls...." - Parramatta Road Corridor Urban Transformation Strategy fact sheet
