MPavilion’s sixth annual BLAKitecture forum aims to centralise Indigenous voices in conversations about architecture, the representation of histories, and the present and future states of our built environments.
Sarah Lynn Rees is a Palawa woman descending from the Plangermaireener and Trawlwoolway people of North-East Tasmania. As an Indigenous woman she brings a unique perspective to her role in architecture, underpinned by her personal experience, heritage and research into the Indigenous built environment. Sarah works at Jackson Clements Burrows Architects where her role includes both architecture and leading JCB’s Indigenous Advisory, Architecture and Design services. She is regularly engaged to advise industry, universities and governments on appropriate processes and protocols. Sarah curates the BLAKitecture series and provides program consultation for MPavilion, teaches at Monash University and sits on several advisory boards.
