Border Lines > Walk & Talk
Enrich your cultural appreciation of Indigenous art and heritage! Join us for morning tea and a curator talk before setting off on a guided Aboriginal Heritage Walk through the Royal Botanic Gardens.
Centred upon the thriving artistic foundations of the tri-state border region of WA, SA and NT, Border Lines, brings together celebrated painters from the Papulankutja and Warakurna art communities and the renowned fibre artists of the Tjanpi Desert Weavers. In a guided tour of the exhibition, our Curator Juliette Hanson will discuss the development and importance of these three art centres, the historical events depicted in the artworks, and the new and traditional art practices of the central desert region.
Followed by the Aboriginal Heritage Walk where you will journey into the ancestral lands of the Koolin nation and explore their rich and thriving culture. Experience a traditional guide and discover traditional uses of plants for food, tools and medicine.
