About this Curation

This week's curation is in honour of NAIDOC Week. NAIDOC Week is an opportunity to celebrate and reflect on the history, culture, and achievements of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples all over Australia. Here at Bluethumb, we're proud to host a diverse, growing community of Indigenous artists, many of whom operate through Indigenous art centres. In this curation, we've compiled some of our favourite pieces by Indigenous artists.
