This week is a wonderful opportunity to support The week is a wonderful opportunity to support our local Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander community. This year's NAIDOC theme is Heal Country. Country is inherent to the identity of Indigenous communities; Healing Country means embracing First Nation’s cultural knowledge and understanding of Country as part of Australia's national heritage. We've transformed the front areas of our galleries in Adelaide and Melbourne with incredible works from our Indigenous art centre partners.
