2021 History of Medicine Talk Series

The Australian and New Zealand College of Anaesthetists and the Geoffrey Kaye Museum of Anaesthetic History is proud to present Djeembana Whakaora: First Nations medicine, healing and health

Djeembana Whakaora is an immersive exhibition which celebrates First Nations medicine and healing practices in both Australia and Aotearoa New Zealand.  

The museum, in collaboration with First Nations curators and Indigenous communities, has developed an immersive, sensory experience in which Indigenous communities, community health organisations and the larger health sector understand, interact and continue to practice Indigenous methods of medicine and healing.   

Be awakened by spirit, learn and discover traditional practices and healing remedies and experience the power of Indigenous healing and medicine. 

Join curators, Kat Clarke and Paris Norton, in this online talk, as they discuss the process of engagement and collaboration, and walk you through the exhibition. 

Kat Clarke is a Wotjobaluk artist, curator and writer, living on Wadawurrung Country.

Paris Norton is a Gomeroi and Māori artist and curator, living on Country. 

This event will be supported by Auslan interpreters.

Participants in the the ANZCA and FPM CPD program may claim the practice evaluation ‘cultural competency’ activity at two credit per hour.
