The Art of Place (Stage 2, Stage 3)

  29-May-2024      02:00PM
Live Event

The Art of Place is an interactive & thought-provoking session examining how we can understand & connect to place through art & how place can mean different things for different people.


Reconciliation Week will see our first free Live Event for 2024 – The Art of Place.  The live event will take place at the Museum of Sydney, which exits on the site of First Government House, on Gadigal land.

During this interactive and thought-provoking session your students will consider how we can understand and connect to place through art and how a place can mean different things, for different people.

  • We will investigate the museum’s place-based art and explore the current exhibition ‘Art of Place’, created by the Coomaditchie United Aboriginal Corporation.
  • Draw on historic records from the NSW State Archives, contemporary First Nations perspectives and archaeology to address the significance and the contested nature of the site.
  • Learn about a range of different techniques, which can be used to create art.
  • Finish the session with a creative arts activity – providing a framework to students so they can develop an artwork about a place and what it means to them.
