Unveiling Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander stories in the sky

Learn about Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander astronomy.

Join Will Stevens, a Muruwari man and Aboriginal astronomer, to learn about the role of stars in Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander society.

Will showcases Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander astronomy and tells us where they are located with the help of technology and what they mean. He specialises in Aboriginal culture and focuses on the cultural stories that relate to the stars. With over 18 years’ experience in teaching Aboriginal culture, he has accumulated from learning from his family, elders, community knowledge holders and research into his heritage.

Will has worked at Sydney Observatory, Sydney Harbour Foreshore Authority and Taronga Zoo as a cultural guide and is currently working at TAFENSW as an Aboriginal Student Support Officer.

A Q&A session will be held at the end of the presentation.

This event is suitable for adults and children aged 13+ years.
