Looking for signs…

A selfie of three people in winter coats (one with a bike helmet on) stand at the front gate of a wooded property. They are showing a sign that says "Woodhaven Eco Culture Centre" and below that "FEELed Lab"

This winter, the FEELed Lab has loved welcoming two Visiting Researchers, Therese Keogh from the University of Melbourne, on Boon Wurrung and Wurundjeri Country, and Jennifer Hamilton, from UNE in Armidale, NSW, on Anaiwan Country.

Therese is here working on her practice-led PhD project on “the spoil grounds,” while Jennifer is pushing forward with her book project, Weathering the City. We loved hearing more about these projects last week in the first Written Together session, convened by Therese. You can also read more about their projects on our Meet the People page.

Three peole in casual outer wear, hats and scarves stand in front a car port. Above a sign that says "FEELed Lab Upstairs" is hanging.

Therese and Jennifer surprised us this morning with a small gift to the lab: new weather-ready signage!

Two people in casual clothes kneel on the ground beside a paint-spattered drop sheet .They are painting purple and yellow FEELed Lab signs.

We are all so grateful to have the opportunity to work on and learn from and about these unceded syilx lands. We hope that the FEELed Lab can continue to grow as a venue for intercultural learning, making and doing, that can gather many feminist and anticolonial perspectives from different corners of this wondrous world.

A hand holds a paintbrush poised above a handpainted sign with with "School House" written on it. A purple and yellow FEELed Lab sign sits opposite.
