Please note that Melanie Mununggurr, guest speaker for Etchings of Legacy, will not be attending today's session at 12pm.


Join Audrey Chin, Melanie Mununggurr and Ramya Jirasinghe and explore the legacies each generation inherits and carries on. Can you transfer guilt, pleasure or obligation? Do your ancestor’s struggles become yours? Does a nation’s history become your own? Are these stories learnt or etched onto bone?
