The true story of colonisation must be told, must be heard, must be acknowledged.
burraja gallery presents VOICE. TREATY. TRUTH. a group exhibition from local First Nations artists who have dissected and rebuilt the 2019 NAIDOC theme.
Contemporary reflections on colonisation, dispossession and how we got to where we stand, are presented through painting, drawing, ceramics, artefact-making and film in this exhibition.
The Opening is on Thursday 11 July at 5:30pm, please join us in celebrating!
“The 2019 NAIDOC theme (VOICE. TREATY. TRUTH.) were three elements to the reforms set out in the Uluru Statement from the Heart. These reforms represent the unified position of First Nations Australians. However, the Uluru Statement built on generations of consultation and discussions among Indigenous people on a range of issues and grievances. Consultations about the further reforms necessary to secure and underpin our rights and to ensure they can be exercised and enjoyed by Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples.”
