Duration: 50 minutes
1 August 2020 - 30 June 2021 Video Conference Book Tickets

Learners will engage with Indigenous histories and cultures through the focus of design in this interactive 50-minute video conference that brings the museum into your classroom. Hear how leading Indigenous artists, designers and makers from communities across Australia use making and design as a way of storytelling and connecting back to Country. At the end of the session, learners will be given a design challenge that they can complete in class that focuses on the principles explored throughout the video conference.

This video conference has been developed in close consultation with First Nations artists and peoples.

Offered Monday to Friday during school hours. Please note that Monday and Friday bookings will be facilitated by Joanne Selfe, Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday bookings will be delivered by Powerhouse Museum educators.
