THE SALTWATER STORY

**Final tickets on sale now**

Gold Coast author Benjamin Allmon, Bundjalung-Yugambeh canoe maker Kyle Slabb, and veteran paddler Mark Matthews have collaborated with award-winning filmmaker Jeff Licence and renowned photographer David Kelly to document their epic 70km three-day sea journey following an ancient First Nations maritime trade route in traditional canoes.

The Saltwater Story is the result: a documentary, fully illustrated book, and exhibit that tells a story of collaboration, co-operation, and connection between Saltwater People, between generations, between black and white.  It is also a story of continuance – of ancient knowledge now held by just a few who are ensuring that tomorrow’s elders are brought along for the journey today.

Join us to celebrate the next generation of Saltwater people living their culture in a journey not made for over a century, and Benjamin’s experience of a piece of First Nations culture that is rarely offered to someone outside of the Saltwater People
