NAIDOC week | Badjurr-Bulok Munga Exhibition bus tour
8 July 2013 to 13 July 2013
Join in the City of Monash NAIDOC week celebrations from 7-14 July 2013.
This year's NAIDOC week theme is We value the vision: Yirrkala Bark Petitions 1963. This theme celebrates the 50th anniversary of the presentation of the Yirrkala Bark Petitions to the Federal Parliament. Through art exhibitions, workshops and activities we celebrate the unique contribution that Aboriginals and Torres Strait Islanders have made to Australia, and the unique connection they have with our country.
Monash's streetscape will be full of colour with the Badjurr-Bulok Munga (meaning "many women make") Exhibition. Bright and vibrant Indigenous artwork from four noted artists: Megan Van Den Berg, Lee Darroch, Mandy Nicholson and Emma Bamblett will be displayed in bus shelters and other JC Decaux advertising displays.
Join the City of Monash NAIDOC week 'hop on, hop off' bus tour!
You'll be able to view all of the Badjurr-Bulok Munga Exhibition works in this tour. On the way, you will stop at the Highway Gallery and be invited to see Aboriginal portraiture painted by artist Amanda Wright.
