Post-NAIDOC Week, keep embracing and celebrating the rich culture of our First Nations Australians from the comfort of your own home. Under the 2021 theme Heal Country!, Join Wiradjuri-Scottish educator-in-residence April Phillips for a tour that will highlight portraits in the collection that shine a light on occupation, stories, and resilience as place-based culture work. We acknowledge collective communities and the individuals who contribute as leaders of our nation.

While this program runs after NAIDOC week to facilitate the participation of school groups, teachers are encouraged to book a special NAIDOC-themed Virtual Excursion to allow us to scaffold the program to your year level.
