NAIDOC Week

Saturday 10 July 2021
10.00am - 3.00pm

Celebrate NAIDOC Week with Newcastle Art Gallery through school holiday workshops, roving artist talks and our free Art Cart program for families.

Saturday 10 July, 10.00am - 3.00pm
To celebrate NAIDOC Week, join Torres Strait community members for a Gallery wide event.

**Event Change** Due to the extension of Public Health Orders in regional NSW, this performance with Toby Cedar and sons will no longer include dancing. The program has been modified to a roving talk with traditional storytelling and song from artist Toby Cedar throughout the exhibition WARWAR: The Art of Torres Strait.

This event will feature a fish weaving workshop, hymns in the Gallery and free Art Cart activities for families. Roving artist talk times vary, pre-bookings required. All other activities are drop in sessions and no bookings required.
