An Open Day for the whole family to enjoy. Head to the Hurstville Museum & Gallery, 14 MacMahon St, Hurstville on Saturday 13 July 2019 from 10am to 4pm for a program of guided tours, storytelling and live artistic demonstrations.

Guest Artist Peta-Joy Williams, a Wiradjuri woman born in Sydney and currently teaching Wiradjuri at Eora College, facilitating art workshops and mural projects, will be leading the storytelling from 11am to 12pm and traditional Wiradjuri jewellery weaving workshops from 1pm to 2.30pm on the day.

There'll also be 15 minute guided tours of Kanalaritja: An Unbroken String at 10.30am and 12.30pm and St George Stories: People - Places - Community at 12pm. A FREE event, all are welcome!


Kanalaritja: An Unbroken String features a variety of beautiful, delicate and rare shell necklaces, created by Tasmanian Aboriginal ancestors in the 1800s, and acclaimed makers of today, as well as a new wave of stringers who had the opportunity to learn the tradition through the luna tunapri (women's knowledge) cultural revitalisation project. Shell-stringing is one of the Tasmanian Aboriginal community's most culturally significant and closely-guarded traditions.
