Belonging: Stories from Far North Queensland is a three-part exhibition series capturing generations of cultural knowledge shaped by a profound relationship to Country.

In these vibrant and innovative works, emerging and established First Nations artists from across Far North Queensland and the Torres Strait explore new materials and techniques as they share what it means to belong.

Belonging debuted at the National Museum of Australia from 7 July 2022 to 12 February 2023, featuring works by artists from Hope Vale, Yarrabah, Moa/Mua Island and Mornington Island.

The second of the Belonging series, with works from Cardwell, Badu Island and Aurukun, is on show at the National Museum from 2 March to 13 August 2023.


The Belonging project was developed by the Indigenous Art Centre Alliance (IACA). The Belonging publication was generously supported by the Gordon Darling Foundation.
