Discovery Space: Continuing culture, 5–24 January 2016

Three children doing a craft activity.

Indigenous Australians have the world’s longest continuing culture. For thousands of years they have expressed their cultural identity through art and material objects.

Parents and children participated in self-facilitated craft activities and string games inspired by objects in the Museum's Encounters exhibition.

Take a look at some of the photos on Flickr.

If you were unable to make it to the Museum check out our free online instructions to make a piece of wearable art at home.
