Djeembana Whakaora - online exhibition launch

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

Djeembana is a Boon Wurrung word meaning a place to gather for special occasions. Whakaora is a te reo Māori word meaning to heal or convalesce. Together, they tell us this exhibition is a place for people to gather to heal.

Djeembana Whakaora has been curated by First Nations curators, with First Nations contributors, providing First Nations insights into medicine, health and healing. The curators and contributors all live on the sacred lands known as Australia.

Join two of the curators, Kat Clarke and Irihipeti Waretini, 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.

Irihipeti Waretini is of Ngāti Rangi descent, a visual and vocal artist/storyteller, living in Naarm on Wurundjeri/Woiwurrung/Boon Wurrung Country.

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