About the Event


The National Gallery of Australia's Art Through Culture principles are the Learning teams’ contribution to the Gallery's First Nations First commitment. We consider the principles in the work we do to ensure all engagement with Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander art and artists is always respectful. Led by our First Nations educators Maggie-Jean Douglas and Noah Watson this teacher professional learning experience will share the Art Through Culture principles with participants and demonstrate practical examples engaging with works of art from touring exhibition Ceremony. Participants will then be invited to discuss and workshop how they can take the principles back into their own learning environments.


9am - 10am: Introduction to the Art through Culture principles

10am - 10.20am: Morning tea

10.20am - 12pm: National Gallery Staff demonstrate the principles in action with art works from Ceremony

12pm - 1pm: Lunch break

1pm - 2pm: Work in small groups to develop learning strategies and feedback

2pm - 4pm: Workshop with Penny Evans

Please note that this is a limited numbers event and only open to currently practicing teachers.
