Exhibition of creative work from the guri gayi –wu  barayi  guri –wu ngura (people of country; people of place) project.

This project has been an exploration of some of the history of contact and colonisation at the southern end of the Central Coast; the settler encroachment on Aboriginal land and some of the local resistance.

The exhibition includes a short film, a song and artworks created during this project. The film presents some of the background to the project, describes some of the activities and shares some of the learning students gained. The artworks were created during a facilitated workshop which community members and University of Newcastle students participated in.

As part of Reconciliation Week 2021, the exhibition is on display in the University of Newcastle, Central Coast Campus Library from Thursday 27th May until Friday 11th June, 2021.

To get to the exhibition, use the lift in the library, or take the stairs, to the first floor. The exhibition is mounted right next door to the Wollotuka centre on campus.

The University of Newcastle acknowledges the traditional custodians of the lands within our footprint areas: Awabakal, Darkinjung, Biripai, Worimi, Wonnarua, and Eora Nations. We also pay respect to the wisdom of our Elders past and present.
