Catalogue

The reawakening of our fundamental connections to Ngurra (Mother Earth) has never been more pressing.  

In a turbulent and unsettling world climate, humanity has become more impersonal and more removed from our natural surrounds. The need to embrace the Old Wisdoms and revive our interconnections  with Mother Earth/Ngurra and each other has never been more urgent. 

Reigniting past stories is essential to healing both Spirit and Country. 

Truth-telling about place brings healing, understanding and empathy for all living beings and allows those interconnections to happen.  

This exhibition during NAIDOC, celebrates our people’s resilient spirit, the reassertion of identity, and acknowledges the ongoing struggle for recognition and belonging in an everchanging world.  

Created by mainly younger generations, old stories have been adapted, taking on new forms and new media, rekindling the fires of their Ancestors. The inclusion of more current and contemporary stories has now become part of their Dreaming. 

This show allows glimpses into the profound spiritual connections Aboriginal people continue to maintain with Country and invites others to also learn and reconnect to Ngurra and offers truth, courage and hope.
