First Nations perspectives: A Geelong Gallery collection resource

A series of rich learning video resources to promote visual thinking strategies.

This series of videos provides personal interpretations of works in the Geelong Gallery collection from the perspective of leaders, educators and artists’ from the Wadawurrung and local Wathaurong communities and First Nation’s people now living on Wadawurrung country. The resources demonstrate a breadth of knowledge and understanding of First Nation people’s histories and culture, past, present and future, and provide an opportunity for students to learn multiple perspectives on culture and history through the visual arts.
Supporting the Department of Education and Training’s implementation of the Marrung: Aboriginal Education Plan 2016–2026 the videos aim to provide an authentic and meaningful connection for all students to celebrate the rich and thriving culture, knowledge and experience of our First Nations people.
