Reconciliation NSW in collaboration with the National Trust of Australia invites the public to view the 2019 Schools Reconciliation Challenge artwork exhibition. On tour in NSW, the exhibition has already visited the Blue Mountains, Yass, Dubbo and now is coming to Brough House, 71-73 Church St Maitland.
The artworks are the culmination of works created by High School and Primary School students across NSW which communicate the 2019 theme of Speaking and Listening from the Heart.
Visitors will see visual works, stories and statements. Many artworks invoke the spirit of Uluru and demonstrate students’ knowledge of reconciliation and the true history of Australia. The Freedom Rides, The Tent Embassy, Vincent Lingiari and the Wave Hill walk off are all explored as stories spoken from the heart. This exhibition offers everyone the ability to connect with Country, with Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Elders, and with their own feelings about identity and being an Australian.
Members of the public are invited to view the Exhibition each Saturday and Sunday from 26th June 2021 until the 22nd August between the hours of 10am - 3pm.
Maitland, New South Wales, Australia
