We enjoyed bringing you our first anthology so much that we are doing it again for International Women’s Day 2018 – this time in podcasts. This year, we have partnered with Centre for Health Equity Training Research and Evaluation at the University of NSW chetre.org to bring a focus on women’s wellbeing.
We ask some pretty special Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander women and one ally for their thoughts around this year’s theme: #PressForProgress http://internationalwomensday.com
Kyra Kum Sing
Kyra Kum-Sing is a Malera Bandjalan and Mitakoodi Woman. Her current role is Emerging Curator with Boomalli Aboriginal Artists Co-operative based in Leichhardt. Kyra is the curator and one of the artists in Boomalli’s current Mardi Gras Exhibition – ‘Luscious All Sorts: Love Won’, which showcases Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander LGBTQI Artists from across our communities. Kyra believes we must support younger generations of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people, as it’s important to continue traditional practices so the next generation will know who they are and knowing where they are from, through maintaining connections to traditional lands, culture, family bloodlines, spirituality and laws, as Aboriginal peoples in Australia.
