Cultural materials in the present


Caution: This exhibition and website includes images and names of deceased people that may cause distress to
Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples.


Dr Richard Walley and Brett Nannup, both Noongar men living in Perth, discuss cultural materials which were brought to Canberra for the Encounters exhibition. They explain that ‘artefacts’ are not just ancient objects but have a present use and function in communities today.
