There are no less than three interesting displays on in the Library this week, being the start of Reconciliation Week and also History Month.
Take a walk around the Library starting from the foyer, where there is an exhibition of artworks by local Gully Winds Elder group members. Then just inside the library entrance is a touring banner exhibition giving the history of the 1967 Vote “Yes” referendum on the rights of Aboriginals to vote. You might want to allow a few minutes to read all eight sides of the banners.
Then make your way around to the back of the Mac Suite to the classroom to view the 12m long Aboriginal History Timeline on display. Come and be amazed by the richness and vastness of Aboriginal history. Allow a few minutes (or more!) for this educational read, too.
Gallery 1855 is hosting an exhibition of Australian Aboriginal Art Today with Curator’s Talk on June 7, check details here.
