Karla Dickens & Bruce Pascoe with Blacklock Media: Mother’s Little Helpers
Lismore-based Wiradjuri artist Karla Dickens has partnered with Bunurong, Tasmanian and Yuin man Bruce Pascoe, from Gippsland, Victoria. Karla is an award-winning multidisciplinary artist whose work discloses aspects of the nation’s history, while Bruce is an author, educator and farmer who in recent years has awakened Australians to the agricultural practices of pre-settlement Aboriginal people. In February 2019 Karla and Bruce embarked on a filming project with Blacklock Media. The filming has taken place in the landscapes surrounding the town of Bingara, which is in Gamilaaraay Country, and a number of Aboriginal students from Bingara Central School are participating in the project. The title of this project has changed from ‘A gateway to Aboriginal agriculture?’ to ‘Mother’s Little Helpers’.
