Join us as we celebrate this year's NAIDOC Week theme - For Our Elders.
Across every generation, our Elders have played and continue to play, an important role and hold a prominent place in our communities and families. Join us throughout NAIDOC Week and get involved in a range of activities designed to celebrate elders past and present. How will you celebrate For Our Elders?
On Level 1 at the Museum throughout the week, we explore Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander culture through weaving practices and crafts.
- Creating your own friendship bracelets using Nyoongar six seasonal colours.
- Contributing to Reclaim the Void cross-cultural project by learning a simple weaving technique to form part of a giant artwork, telling the story of country by Ngalia custodians of the northern Goldfields.
- Creating your own raffia stick weaving artwork to take home.
- Learning about the Nyoongar six seasons.
Please note that this is not a drop & leave activity. Carers are required to accompany children taking part and enjoy the experience themselves!
Meeyakba Shane Pickett: Six Seasons features a series of acclaimed works interpreting the six seasons and the landscape of the south-west of Western Australia.
