The Dark Sky Renaissance: Astronomical Heritage


7pm-10pm, Friday 17th May

Indigenous and non-Indigenous cultures have long used the stars to navigate, develop calendars, and understand our origins, but urban expansion is threatening our collective heritage. Join astronomer Dr Duane Hamacher, Kamilaroi woman Krystal De Napoli, and Gunnai and Yorta Yorta man Wayne Thorpe as they discuss the importance of us preserving our dark skies. Following the talk guests will be invited to participate in stargazing on the Cedar Lawn, weather permitting. Refreshments included.
