un Projects is pleased to welcome Daniel Browning to the team, as sub-editor for un Magazine 12.2, working alongside our Co-Editors Maddee Clark & Neika Lehman.
Daniel Browning is a highly respected journalist and radio broadcaster from the Bundjalung and Kullilli peoples of far northern New South Wales and south-western Queensland. A trained painter, he is a visual arts graduate of the Queensland University of Technology. From 2009 he was guest co-editor of Artlink Indigenous, a specialist issue of the Australian contemporary art journal. He is widely published as a freelance arts writer specialising in contemporary Indigenous Australian art. Since 2005 he has produced and presented Awaye!, the Indigenous art and culture program on ABC Radio National. He has produced sound artworks from three UNESCO World Heritage sites, exhibited during the 2015 Mildura Palimpsest Biennale and in extremis at Arts House, Melbourne in 2017. As a documentary maker he has received a bronze medal at the New York Festival for Cast Among Strangers, a study of the human zoo phenomenon. His documentary Fernando’s ghost about the Aboriginal rights activist Anthony Martin Fernando was highly commended in the John Newfong Media Prize in 2008 and received an honourable mention at imagineNATIVE, the international festival of Indigenous film and media arts in Canada. Currently, he produces Word Up, a podcast which shares Australia’s diverse Indigenous languages one word at a time. As curator of Urban Theatre Projects’ Blak Box, he is developing a program of storytelling, oral history and music which imagines the past, present and future of the Barangaroo precinct. Situated on the western foreshore of Sydney Harbour Blak Box will offer audiences a vantage point for a wider exploration of the First People’s relationship with their waters through sound.
