Songlines took visitors on a journey across the Australian desert in an Aboriginal-led exhibition about the epic Seven Sisters Dreaming. The exhibition included stunning artworks, a state-of-the-art digital dome and a vibrant art centre.

Songlines was on show in Canberra from 15 September 2017 to 28 February 2018
