Member Profile : Benjamin Allmon

Benjamin Allmon spent several years immersed in the Bundjalung-Yugambeh community, writing a book and producing a film about their re-creation of an ancient maritime route of connection in traditional canoes that became The Saltwater Story. It was only through meaningful engagement, time, and respect that he was able to do so, and hopes to share his experiences with other non-Indigenous artists embarking on cross-cultural collaborations.
