About the program

The Home Program is a visual arts project that brings together school in Wiradjuri, Kamilaroi/Gamilaroi, Worimi, Biripi, and Anaiwan language areas to engage with the Art Gallery of NSW, the collections of regional art galleries across NSW and local Aboriginal community and culture.

Specialist education support is provided by the NSW Department of Education for teachers and schools throughout the duration of this program. Through participation teachers and students develop an understanding of nationally recognised and local Aboriginal art practice, language and culture.
