Healing Through Belonging Exhibition

27 May 2019

A new Indigenous art exhibition will be unveiled at a free community event at Sydney Olympic Park on Saturday June 1.

The Healing Through Belonging exhibition will feature over 30 artworks from more than 20 community and professional artists and will be on display for the first three weekends in June at the Murama Healing Space, by the Parramatta River at Newington Armory.

Artworks include carved emu eggs, a woven eel trap, digital stories, clay sculpture, ceramics, paintings and pottery.

Visitors to the exhibition will also be able to take a free guided Indigenous Cultural Heritage tour, led by young Aboriginal River Rangers, which will run hourly between 10am and 4pm on June 1-2, 8-9, and 15-16.

There will also be Indigenous cultural activities and performances at the Murama Healing Space during the exhibition.

The Healing Through Belonging exhibition has been developed in close partnership between Sydney Olympic Park Authority and the local Aboriginal community. The exhibition and broader cultural project have been made possible by NSW Government grants from Create NSW and the Heritage Near Me program.
