Presented by Open House Melbourne and Foreground for Melbourne Design Week, engage in an intimate conversation with Rueben Berg, the first Aboriginal person appointed as a Commissioner for the Victorian Environmental Water Holder.

Australia’s Aboriginal peoples have tens of thousands of years’ experience in water management. With the appointment of the country’s first Aboriginal Water Commissioner, Rueben Berg, in late 2017, the value of that accumulated knowledge finally appears to be dawning on its governments. The talk is hosted in the Koorie Heritage Trust gallery where Bangerang artist Peta Clancy’s solo exhibition Undercurrent will be displayed.
