Bangawarra is a legal partnership between D’harawal eora Knowledge Keeper and Sydney Registered Traditional Owner Shannon Foster and Wugulora architecture academic and spatial practitioner Jo Paterson Kinniburgh. The team includes Wiradjuri architecture graduate Matte McConnell and Rhiannon Brownbill, and together we specialise in the spatial implications of sustainably caring for Country.


Bangawarra is a spatial design practice that challenges colonial spatial practices, by listening-to, valuing and respecting tens-of-millennia of unbroken Ancestral knowledge and culture. We provide site-specific Aboriginal knowledges, language and cultural consultancy, working with clients to reveal their relevance to spatial design and planning.
