2016 Exhibition: 'Songlines'
See artworks created by school students around the NAIDOC Week Theme.
See incredible artworks created by students in NSW Public Schools across Sydney (Kindergarten to Year 12) in their exploration of the 2016 NAIDOC Week theme.
This year's theme is ‘Songlines: the living narrative of our nation’.
It's an opportunity for Australians to learn more about Songlines and explore those which have created the country in their region. It is a chance to learn how Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander communities are now using digital technologies and modern mediums to record and celebrate these ancient Songlines or dreaming stories.
The focus of this annual arts program is for students and teaching staff to develop an understanding of Aboriginal culture and heritage, the unique connection Aboriginal people have to country and how the achievements of the past inform and further our aspirations and plans for the future.

The museum acknowledges the Gadigal people of the Eora nation as the traditional custodians of the bamal (earth) and badu (waters) on which we work. We also acknowledge all traditional custodians of the land and waters throughout Australia and pay our respects to them and their cultures, and to elders past and present.
