An exhibition of works by students from ten public schools in the Central Tablelands region who participated in the Home Program. The Home Program is a series of workshops, virtual excursions and embedded framework in schools looking at contemporary Aboriginal art, language and culture. The students studied and created artworks inspired by five contemporary Aboriginal artists and collectives: Badger Bates, Euraba Artists and Papermakers, Lorraine Connelly-Northey, Jonathan Jones, and Reko Rennie.

Participating schools: Wallerawang Public School, Spring Hill Public School, Clergate Public School, Mullion Creek Public School, O’Connell Public School, Canobolas Public School, Stuart Town Public School, Hargraves Public School, and Neville Public School.

The Home Program is a partnership between Wiradyuri community, Wagga Wagga Art Gallery, NSW Department of Education’s Arts Unit and the Art Gallery of NSW and connects schools to local Aboriginal artists, community, language and culture. GUNHIGAL NGUAMBANG WIRADYURI MAYINY is Bathurst’s edition of the Home Program delivered in collaboration with local schools and the Wiradyuri community.
