In episode three, Sebastian de Line, Associate Curator Indigenous Care and Relations at Agnes speaks with Qanita Lilla. They speak of life’s journeys and of what led Sebastian on their current path. What becomes clear is that one single path is not part of Sebastian’s life-trajectory. The tapestry of their life shows the importance of cultivating technical skill and competency, but more importantly, it is about recognising what you love and using it to find your place in the world.
