Exhibition SRC 2022: From River to Sea @ Everglades House & Gardens
May 25 @ 1:30 pm – Jul 14 @ 3:30 pm

The Schools Reconciliation Challenge exhibition ‘River to Sea: Our Island Home’ showcases a colourful collection of student finalists work exploring reconciliation and celebrating First Nations people’s ancient knowledge and connection to lands and waters.

Each year the National Trust partners with Reconciliation NSW to tour the student finalists’ works throughout the state, allowing more schools to get involved and showcase their art and writing works.

In 2024, Reconciliation NSW’s 13th Schools Reconciliation Challenge exhibition is comprised of a variety of impactful works from NSW primary and high school students portraying their perspective on the theme for reconciliation, ‘River to Sea: Our Island Home‘, celebrating First Nations people’s ancient knowledge and connection to lands and waters.

Water is the lifeblood for First Nations people who, for over 60,000 years, have lived on this vast and arid continent. For Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples, their relationship with water goes far beyond that of just physical survival; it is deeply embedded in identity, spirituality, cultural practices and ways of life.

This unmissable exhibition features an array of visually colourful artworks that celebrate Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people’s cultures, histories, languages, stories and the call for all Australians to participate in reconciliation.

General entry costs apply (FREE- $17)

Horizon @ Sydney Opera House
Jun 12 @ 7:30 pm – Jul 13 @ 9:00 pm

From two of the world’s great First Nations comes a brand-new work: Horizon. It’s the place where sea meets sky, the horizon we all look to, the compass that guides us home.

This event is on at various times. Recommended for ages 12+

Horizon joins cultural forces across oceans and eons

There is a place between sea and sky—a sacred realm, where the sun rises and falls and the light is new.

From two of the world’s great First Nations comes a brand-new work: Horizon. Some call it a feeling, some call it the mother spirit. It’s the place where sea meets sky, the horizon we all look to, the compass that guides us home.

In Bangarra’s first mainstage cross-cultural collaboration, leading Māori choreographer and Arts Laureate Moss Te Ururangi Patterson joins beloved Bangarra alumna Deborah Brown. Together they guide Bangarra’s award-winning ensemble in stories that honour their mother countries and the spirit that calls them home.
