Place-based cultural revitalisation: Culture futures with the Corroboree frog will explore an interweaving of human and more-than-human renewal that enables resilience in social-ecological systems. The team will work with community members in the Bogong Peaks Wilderness Area in Kosciuszko National Park to reinvigorate the cultural stories of Corroboree frog. The research is led by Wolgalu Country and Corroboree frog in collaboration with Wolgalu and Wiradjuri First Nations community members.
The project is a pilot study with two key aims:
- To explore new ways to support cultural revitalisation and renewal;
- To scope and foster the development of participatory indicators that support culturally-led pathways to resilience.
