Offsite: We see recognition—a children’s art exhibition
Students and educators from a wide range of schools and year levels explore the theme of reconciliation through classroom learning, activities and workshops. The resulting works provide students with the opportunity to express their own creative responses to reconciliation and promote respect for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people.
Opening hours at Barwon Water were Saturday 25 May to Sunday 9 June, open weekdays between 10am—5pm and weekends between 10am—2pm.
These workshops were presented by Aboriginal artists from the Gunditjmara, Wadawurrung, Wagiman, Wurundjeri and Yorta Yorta clans.
Participating artists: Deanne Gilson, Jenny Murray Jones, Georgia MacGuire, Nathan Patterson and Aunty Bronwyn Razem.
Participating schools: Beeac Primary School, Clonard College, Colac South West Primary School, Francis Xavier Primary School, Mandama Primary School, Matthew Flinders Girls Secondary College, Newcomb Secondary College, Northern Bay College and Rokewood Primary School.
