Associate Professor Fabri Blacklock is a Nucoorilma and Biripi woman from Tingha and Dingo Creek in northern NSW. She is a Scientia Fellow at UNSW Art and Design. Her relational research is central to her identity as a Goori woman privileging Aboriginal epistemologies and ontologies as central to our connection to country and culture and our resilience through the continued colonisation of our people, land and culture. Her research utilises Aboriginal Research Methodologies: yarning, art and deep listening and she has been instrumental in the revival and teaching of NSW Aboriginal women’s artistic practices like possum and kangaroo skin cloak making and weaving. She is particularly interested in the combination of Aboriginal art practices with modern technologies and materials as a continued way of sharing knowledge and culture, as well as the important role art plays in wellbeing for Aboriginal people.
