Episode 8 Anne Harris: Healing Country with Artist Melissa Stannard

Melissa Stannard is a Yuwaalaraay, Gamilaraay and Koama Artist living on Kabi Kabi/Gubbi Gubbi country. She shares her poetic words about the healing that comes from working on country. We talk about inter-generational trauma and how art is a way to bring awareness and gentle conversations in a space of pain, that is respectful and creates a path to explore this important topic. This interview coincides with the NAIDOC – Healing Country exhibition that Melissa co-curated at the Cooroy Butter Factory, Queensland. Connect with Mel on
