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)
