Contemporary Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Art Practice

Winangali means 'to hear, to know’ in the language of the Gadigal people, the traditional owners of the land and waters that the MCA is situated upon.
Winangali has been developed by the MCA’s Lead Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Artist Educator, to encourage primary students to make personal connections to Indigenous artworks and perspectives. This program emphasises the continuity, diversity and uniqueness of Indigenous Australian artists’ practice through a series of engaging hands-on activities and discussions in the gallery, which can be extended in an art-making session in the studio.
