EVENING LECTURES & FORUMS were enjoyed after a day of forays and dye workshops. One such presentation included a talk and demonstration of Aboriginal cultural heritage by Hardy Derschow, (complete with samples of barbecued delicacies of kangaroo, EMU and roasted grubs!) and a demonstration of how to play the didgeridoo, with everyone getting a chance to practice on long plastic pipes. 

Others included “Ethical Harvesting Of Fungi”, a forum held to discuss conservation issues of ethical and sustainable harvesting around the world in order to protect the world’s fungal biodiversity, slide shows about Norwegian and Finnish fungi-dyed textiles, contemporary costume design, the mysteries of pH, Creative body adornment, and a “Bush Dance” in town. These kept us all happily enjoying the mild evenings under the Southern Cross!
