Reading Between the Lines: Uncovering Butchulla History in the K’Gari Research Archive
Archives have been founded on colonial systems of record keeping. Institutional archives valued written records over non-literate records and valorised colonial stories which upheld the settler-nation narrative, resulting in a disproportionate representation of non-Indigenous perspectives in the archive and in our nation’s history. Reading Between the Lines: Uncovering Butchulla History in the K’gari Research Archive will present Butchulla stories that have previously been hidden in the settler-colonial narrative of the K’gari Research Archive alongside other creative outcomes. Presented for Horizon Festival 2021. Curator: Rose Barrowcliffe.
