Emerging Curator Program has its benefits

Albany curator off to Canberra

Albany curator Shona Coyne has accepted a position at the National Museum of Australia in Canberra, thanks to her efforts at the Yurlmun: Mokare Mia Boodja exhibition in 2016/17.

To ensure the Yurlmun exhibition was delivered in a culturally sensitive way, the Albany Heritage Reference Group Aboriginal Corporation had sought Noongar people to be emerging curators.

Ms Coyne's new curator position forms part of the Endeavour 250 project, which marks 250 years since Captain Cook's HMB Endeavour sailed along Australia's east coast, with an exhibition highlighting Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander perspectives.

Julie Dowling – Babanyu (Friends for life)

Opening this weekend

AGWA WA Unlimited WA Now

This exhibition takes a step back in time to a period (1993–2005) which saw the emergence of First Nation Badimaya artist, Julie Dowling.

In this period, the real-life stories she shared about First Nations peoples’ experience in this country were abrupt, brutal and challenging. They were, and still are, largely unknown or acknowledged in mainstream Australian society.
