Cartographers of Othering


I am ashamed that I find beauty in the facade of a double story bank

I wrote this poem, ‘Cartographers of Othering’ to mark “Australia Day” 2020.

I live and work on Wadawurrung land and am committed to learning more about the history and culture of this place and how to be a good ally to the Indigenous community here in Ballarat.

The hand-drawn mining map in question can be viewed at the Sebastopol Library.
