The HOME Program

Exhibition dates 31 October 2022 - 30 January 2023

Home: Aboriginal Art of NSW program is a partnership between Wiradjuri community at Wagga Wagga, The Arts Unit, NSW Department of Education, Wagga Wagga Art Gallery and the Art Gallery of NSW, and connects schools to local Aboriginal artists, community, language and culture.

The program was first developed in 2015 when education outreach program was developed based on the major education resource Home: Aboriginal art from New South Wales, published by the Gallery in 2013.

The program was delivered to 10 schools in Biripi and Worimi country and featured professional learning for teachers, regional gallery staff and local artists, the delivery of a bespoke visual arts program for Stage 3 students over three school terms, virtual excursions to the Art Gallery of New South Wales and a student exhibition of the resulting artwork at Manning Regional Art Gallery and Yalawani Ganya.
