Join us for this special event to mark National Reconciliation Week 2019.

The inspirational Mutti Mutti musician, storyteller and activist Kutcha Edwards poses some curly questions in a workshop designed to draw from the participants the knowledge of Aboriginal Australia they currently possess and enhance that, with some reality checks along the way.

Through stories, songs and two-way conversations, Kutcha explores, defines and imparts his understanding of what it is to be an Indigenous person in Australia today and the true history that brought us to this point in time.

Presenter

Kutcha Edwards - Mutti Mutti Man

Kutcha’s story is one of twists and turns, ups and downs but always one of family and culture.

Kutcha was born on the banks of the Murrumbidgee River at Balranald, New South Wales, of the Mutti Mutti people and is among the many Stolen Generations.

He has worked, through his music, to tell people about himself and share his unique journey, one that is also the journey of all Australians. What Kutcha shares with people is a connection, a belonging. His music and stories are the songs of his journey, his people's journey, and these are his gift to connect with and inspire others.
