Award winning British rapper Akala is coming to Lennox Head’s Park Lane Theatre for a one-night fundraiser for Boomerang Festival.
This modern renaissance man, who is also an artist, historian and activist, will be one of four brilliant-minded cultural icons to come on stage on Wednesday December 7 to discuss ‘how education can be better delivered through art and culture.’
The thought-provoking discussion will be chaired by Rhoda Roberts AO, whose rich background in arts and culture will fuel the conversation.
Also appearing on the panel will be Bundjalung artist, curator and activist Djon Mundine OAM, and rising Indigenous literary star Ellen van Neervan.
The panel will discuss the significance of culture and art as educational tools – looking at African and Aboriginal perspectives, as well as historical and modern examples, and the controversial elements of these topics.
Expect this exceptional calibre of minds to share a wealth of collective knowledge and opinions on how communities can improve, for the sake of future generations.
