The Australian War Memorial, the Museum of Australian Democracy, and the National Portrait Gallery are collaborating to celebrate NAIDOC Week! Join our live learning facilitators on these special virtual programs, and learn about the achievements and continued contributions of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples by engaging with objects, artworks, and texts from across each of our collections. Through discussion, drawing, and other activities, students will explore our shared history and projected futures, with a focus on First Nations stories and experiences.

We are also offering sessions during the school holidays, such as library programming for children, for interested community groups.
