Bandalang Studio is a First Nations designed and led Indigenous Engineering Design Studio that fosters transdisciplinary collaborations and supports Indigenous individuals, enterprises, start-ups and their allies.
Located on Ngunnawal and Ngambri land, ‘Bandalang’ is a Wiradyuri language name which means ‘joining’ or ‘junction’. The name is chosen to symbolise a place of connections and transdisciplinary collaboration.
Bandalang Studio is a critically important initiative towards changing perspectives in engineering. Understanding transdisciplinary systems and whole-of-life responsibilities are at the heart of sustainable practices. This understanding is foundational in Indigenous knowledge systems and the work that is happening at Bandalang Studio.
