Lore & Order

4 September - 11 October

This exhibition explored the complex relationship between Birabahn and the Reverend Threlkeld, based around Ebenezer (now Toronto) as one of the first Christian missions in Lake Macquarie. The narrative extended to mission life and included archival materials, contemporary artworks (both borrowed and commissioned) and local stories from Aboriginal Elders forced to live under the Aborigines Protection Act and Board in New South Wales.

A gallery exhibition project curated by Donna Biles Fernando with the Aboriginal Reference Group.Funded by the State Government through NSW Aboriginal Regional Arts Fund.
