Victorian Aboriginal artists are invited to submit expressions of interest to participate in an exhibition at Bunjilaka honouring the 50th anniversary of the 1967 Referendum.


Bunjilaka Aboriginal Cultural Centre at Melbourne Museum is a dynamic cultural centre, artistic space and exhibition gallery celebrating the survival of Victoria's Koorie people.

Within Bunjilaka Aboriginal Cultural Centre, the Birrarung Gallery exhibits the artwork of Victorian Aboriginal artists, providing artists with exposure to the museum's national and international visitors.

Bunjilaka is now seeking Aboriginal artists to participate in an exhibition honouring the 50th anniversary of the 1967 Referendum, which will remain open through Sorry Day, Reconciliation Week and NAIDOC Week 2017.

The exhibition opportunity is open to individuals, groups and collectives from one of the 38 language groups of Koorie Victoria. All visual artwork will be considered for the exhibition, including but not limited to fibre craft, woodwork, glasswork, fashion, painting, photography, pottery, jewellery. Music, theatre and performance works suitable for exhibition will also be accepted. Artwork must be available to be exhibited for six months.

Successful applicants will be supported in the development of the show by the Bunjilaka Project Officer and Museum staff.

Expressions of interest close on Monday 6 March.
