Walaaybaa (HOME)

Wednesday 18 October, 2023 @ 10:00 am - Sunday 10 December, 2023 @ 4:00 pm AEDT

Free

Walaaybaa (HOME) is developed by the Gamilaroi community at Tamworth and Tamworth Regional Gallery working with NSW Department of Education’s Arts Unit and the Art Gallery of New South Wales as part of the program Home: Aboriginal art from New South Wales.

Walaaybaa (HOME) is a regional outreach education program that delivers sustained educational content and experiences introducing local Aboriginal art practice to primary and secondary school teachers, students and their wider communities.

Schools exhibiting include:

Hillvue Public School

Nemingha Public School

Tintinhull Public School

Moonbi Public School

Tamworth South Public School

Walhallow Public School

This year, schools participated in hands on learning with textile workshops facilitated in the Tamworth Regional Gallery Studio with local artists Sophie Honess and Tania Hartigan. Language workshops were delivered by Uncle Len Waters.

Local students have worked to create individual and groups artworks that reflect their connection to country. We are thrilled with the results that the schools in the Walaaybaa (HOME) program have created and we hope you enjoy this exhibition.

Walaaybaa (HOME) is realised as part of the program Home: Aboriginal art from New South Wales; a partnership since 2015 between Wiradjuri community at Wagga Wagga, Wagga Wagga Art Gallery, NSW Department of Education’s Arts Unit and the Art Gallery of New South Wales.
