About this Curation

NAIDOC Week begins on the fist Sunday of July each year, and is a celebration of the history, culture and achievements of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples. Here at Bluethumb, we're proud to host a number of incredible Indigenous art centres. In this curation you'll find a few of our favourite pieces by Aboriginal artists, many of whom operate through remote Indigenous art centres.
