We welcome Dale Tillbrook, a Wardandi Bibbulmun woman from the Margaret River, Busselton area. Dale has been a Swan Valley local since 1998 when she opened the Maalinup Gallery offering authentic Aboriginal art, gifts and souvenirs.
Having spent many years gathering knowledge from her elders and other sources, Dale is often called on to talk about bush food, which she loves presenting and encouraging people to incorporate into their everyday cooking.
She is passionate about education and works extensively with students of all ages.
“It is an important part of my cultural journey, and I represent the Swan Valley region at every chance; travelling as far as Italy to cook at Australia on a Plate for 100 people, which is a wonderful opportunity,” said Dale.
We are blessed at The Sound Temple to have Dale join us locally from the Swan Valley to host talks and facilitate workshops here in the Perth Hills as part of our annual ‘Common Threads Woven Through Community’ Project.
Common Threads Woven Through Community is a month long community engagement project which includes topics of integrating sustainability, creativity, and traditional hand-crafted wisdom of the ages.
Our 2020 theme embraces the inter connection of our living world – the seen and unseen “The Pollination of Life” exploring the underlying connections between artists, creatives, sustainable enterprises and movements. As we all carry a thread that collaboratively weaves the health and wellbeing of our collective future on this planet.
These events are designed to share art and craft forms and exchange knowledge, to open participants up to a new way of life, they encourage the questioning of our thought patterns, they support the dissolving of old belief systems bringing a sense of belonging. You will feel deeply inspired by being part of a continuing impulse of considerable change.
