ART ON THE MOVE is honoured to be working alongside Community Arts Network (CAN) to celebrate First Nations culture in the Goldfields.

ART ON THE MOVE will be supporting CAN on the development of Legacies, a multi-layered storytelling project which will celebrate the unique personal histories of trail-blazing Elders from the Goldfields region.

Charting the unique journeys of up to 10 Elders through critical times in Australian history, Legacies will honour their resilience and courage. Designed around the creation of oral history recordings and a photography series, the project will culminate in an exhibition in Kalgoorlie.

Legacies is inspired by CAN’s groundbreaking multimedia storytelling project Ngaluk Waangkiny (Us Talking), which will be touring to the Museum of the Goldfields next year.

These important projects provide platforms for First Nations Elders to share their cultural knowledge and stories with future generations. Both projects link to ART ON THE MOVE’s Regional Exhibition Touring Strategy which acknowledges the importance of celebrating First Nations culture across the regions, and providing opportunities for meaningful cultural engagement and exchange.

Our involvement in the development of Legacies and tour of Ngaluk Waangkiny is made possible with thanks to the Regional Exhibition Touring Boost, managed by the Department of Local Government, Sport and Cultural Industries and supported through Royalties for Regions.

We look forward to working with CAN and project partners Museum of the Goldfields, Tjuma Pulka 96.3 FM, Artgold inc. and ABC Goldfields-Esperance over the coming months. Stay tuned!
