Walking the Art: Ngunnawal Country Experience
POSTPONED TO SUNDAY 18 APRIL
Join Ngunnawal artist and knowledge holder Richie Allen for a journey through Mulligan’s Flat as he shares some of the stories behind the artworks he has presented at the Celebrate Gungahlin festival. Richie and his team will show you how Ngunnawal people see the landscape, and look back into the past to explore the cultural significance of many of the features of the world around us.
You’ll gain a greater understanding of the symbols that Richie uses in his artwork through exploring at Mulligans Flat, and enhance your ability to read Aboriginal artwork. You will also have the opportunity to try your hand at several Aboriginal Art forms yourself, including humpy building, weaving and boomerang making.
Don’t miss this incredible opportunity to experience your local place through the eyes of the traditional owners of the land.
The cultural showcase is a COVID Safe event. Please do not attend this event if you are unwell, or have recently returned from overseas or a designated COVID-19 hotspot. If you are required by law to self isolate and cannot attend the workshop, we will refund your ticket.
