A Sunday filled with art

This month the theme is "Belonging Stories of Australian Arts", and there will be several activities around the theme on the day. Firstly, there will be an opportunity to listen to the tale of "Enora and the Black Crane" by the artist Arone Meeks. Kids will also be able to do the wombat-wobble with Wiradjuri singer Johnny Huckle. The National Film and Sound Archive will also be there presenting their amazing Carriberrie, a virtual reality experience, which is not to be missed.

Local dance group the Wiradjuri Echoes will also be teaching some of their moves through dance lessons. Additionally, Arone Meeks will also present an audio described and sensory tour for people who are blind or with low vision of Thanakupi's aluminium sculpture Eran (2010).
