Welcome to Rock Art Australia’s March 2022 E-News
On behalf of the team at Rock Art Australia we wish you an enjoyable and rewarding 2022. It’s already March and thankfully plans are full steam ahead for research to resume in the Kimberley and Arnhem Land.
Researchers are back in their labs and planning field trips to the Kimberley and Arnhem Land from April onwards. The Dating team will be back in the Drysdale River National Park with partners Balanggarra Aboriginal Corporation. Prof Joakim Goldhahn who heads the Rock Art Australia Ian Potter Kimberley Chair will be working with colleagues in the Kimberley and Arnhem Land, and a new project Tracking East Kimberley Gwion Gwion, Wanjina, and other recent rock art in the Cockburn Ranges starts in April. We are excited to be planning a visit to Perth and the Kimberley to connect with our WA supporters and Indigenous partners. Our national lecture series will be announced shortly.
Congratulations to Prof Rachel Popelka-Filcoff and Dr Damien Finch for their recent research accolades. Rachel was named on the Analytical Scientist Power List and Damien was awarded a AINSE (Australian Institute of Nuclear Science and Engineering) gold medal.
