They Shield Us

  • Exhibition
  • Free event

See the Koorie Heritage Trust’s Collection along with new works by artists Yaraan Bundle, Djirri Djirri Dance Group, Isobel Morphy-Walsh, Marilyne Nicholls and Lisa Waup. The exhibition highlights how First Nations women adorn their bodies to harness the strength and power of their Ancestors and how their bodies are carriers of thousands of years of cultural knowledge. When these pieces are adorned, there is an expression of pride in identity, and the continuation and evolution of culture.
