Cultural Burning combines a fire-inspired installation by artist Tim Coad, with a Sci Art Walks episode on Aboriginal cultural fire, featuring a talk by Andry Sculthorpe and Billy Paton-Clarke, with music by Emily Wurramara. The audio also features a special introduction in which Tim discusses his artwork.
