Description

The exhibition explores ancient and modern cultural connections through, art, symbolism and language. It represents a cultural and creative learning journey, blending artworks and storytelling to heighten the ‘Our Place – On Country’ narrative.

Emphasis is placed on community skills and knowledge sharing to foster inclusivity and cultural awareness, using natural and re-cycled materials to delve into themes of belonging and inter-generational trade in our rural community.

The collection of work explores ancient and modern understandings of culturally connected themes, practices, and language. With prominence on communication and collaborative activity and how this has changed social connectivity, inclusion, cultural and historical awareness and the sharing of trans-generational knowledge to build cultural trust and awareness over time.

Join us in celebrating our shared heritage and connections that transcend generations.

Curated and directed by Lisa Martello-Hart.
