“Barrawao seeks to bring about an understanding of the deep connection between Language and Country in an embodied and experiential manner. Barrawao can be translated as “to fly or to make haste” from the D’harawal Sydney Language and provided by Shannon Foster.”
Barrawao is co-designed in a collaboration between Andrew Burrell (Lecturer, Visual Communications, UTS), Shannon Foster (D’harawal Sydney Saltwater Knowledge Keeper), Rachel Hendery (Linguist, Western Sydney University), Danièle Hromek (Budawang/ Yuin, Designer and Researcher), and Louisa King (Lecturer, School of Architecture, UTS)
A very special thank you to Uncle Greg Simms for allowing us to include his voice and for sharing his knowledge of both Language and Country. Uncle Greg Simms is an Elder with ancestral ties to the Gundungurra people of the Blue Mountains and the Gadigal people of the Darug nation.
