Pathways to Reconciliation Exhibitions – Caring for Country
The Pathways Program; Art and Storytelling as a pathway to reconciliation was supported by the City of Sydney’s Cultural and Creative Grants and Sponsorship program and the Inner West Council’s Community Wellbeing grants program. Five exhibitions will be launched during NAIDOC week. These exhibitions will be visible to the community, the works will be hung on the outward facing side of the school fences of Tempe, Kegworth, Fort St, Newtown and Bourke St Public Schools. Come and see the artworks and writing by school students, each of them attended 3 workshops which introduced them to Caring for Country concepts in their local areas with Uncle Jimmy Smith (Wiradjuri), Dance and Ceremony with Kerry and Maci Johnson (Wiradjuri) and explored yarning circles where the subjects included identity, reconciliation, hopes and dreams.
Join us for the live launch on Zoom at the Powerhouse Museum with a Welcome to Country and messages from the Hon. Don Harwin, Minister for the Arts and Aboriginal Affairs and the Hon. Sarah Mitchell, Minister of Education.
