Sacred Stories: Desert Dreamings

Male Aboriginal Elder looking into the distance

Note: Sessions are rated: M - for mature audiences. Partake in a unique aesthetic journey: a series of curated art film screenings designed to engage, educate, and inspire.

Dive deep into the world of art, exploring its myriad forms, its illustrious history, and its transformative power.

How does the startling beauty - and humour - of Aboriginal art intertwine with reverberations of the past and our present?

An extraordinary first-hand account of the international battle to reclaim the artwork and heritage of one of Australia's most important Indigenous figures: Albert Namatjira.Namatjira was one of those rare artists who changed the course of history. But he was never fully accepted by white Australia, and after being wrongfully imprisoned, he died despondent and broken. Then, in 1983, the Government sold the rights to his work to a dealer – despite Namatjira having left his art to his wife and children. NAMATJIRA PROJECT documents their fight to have his legacy returned to its rightful home.

This small but powerful exhibition draws on the history of textile banners as artefacts used for activism.

Dates and times

  • Monday - CLOSED
  • Tuesday - CLOSED
  • Wednesday // 10am to 4pm
  • Thursday // 10am to 4pm
  • Friday // 10am to 4pm
  • Saturday // 10am to 4pm

This exhibition shows how ‘crafting’ – traditionally considered women’s work – can be used for political expression and social change.

Changemakers consists of eight textile banners that represent a range of historical and contemporary activist movements including the women’s suffrage campaign, as well as banners displayed in town halls and churches. 

Many of the social issues raised by early activists remain vitally relevant today, including equal pay, sexual harassment, family violence, and female representation in Parliament and business.
