We are delighted to invite you to a guided tour showcasing the work of Australian First Nations artists currently on display in the ANU HC Coombs Building.

National Reconciliation Week (27 May - 3 June) is an important time for the ANU community to learn about and celebrate Australian First Nations peoples, their histories and cultures, and to explore how each of us can contribute to the reconciliation movement.

Join us as we commemorate this occasion by celebrating the diverse and profound artistic expressions that encapsulate the cultural significance of Australia's First Nation communities. This tour will enable you to gain a deeper understanding, appreciation, and respect for the remarkable artistic traditions nurtured by these communities.

ANU College of Asia and the Pacific Dean, Professor Helen Sullivan, will deliver an introductory welcome to the tour. Following this, Dr Rose Faunce, from the School of Culture, History and Language will guide the tour providing insightful narratives, contextualising each piece and shedding light on the significance of these artistic traditions within the broader cultural landscape.

Please note that the tour will depart from the main entrance of the Coombs Building.

*Registration is essential.
