Indigenous Art Collection Launch & Sorry Day Assembly
May 29 @ 9:30 am - 3:00 pmFree
John Pilger Class of 1957 says of the collection:
This collection of Australian Indigenous art is entitled Na Ngara, which means “listen, think and learn” in the Darug language. As a way of learning and teaching about Indigenous life — that which is truly unique about Australia — the art displayed here offers a remarkable opportunity. For each work is a door to an epic struggle of people and culture in our midst. Congratulations to my old school for this enlightened initiative. It is, of course, just the beginning of listening, thinking and learning.
An indigenous art collection has been purchased and curated for Sydney Boys High School with funds from the Killip Trust and a matching grant from Sydney City Council. The SHSOBU believes that this is a first in a public school. The Art collection will be available for viewing all day and Old Boys and the High community are encouraged to participate.
