Throughout 2018 Tuggeranong Arts Centre’s Community Arts and Cultural Development Program will continue to produce a range of projects and programs that reflect and grow our cultural identity.
Our First Nations program offers a host of cultural arts based activities with and for the community. We collaborate closely with the Ngunnawal people on whose traditional land we work, as well as, with Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people from around Australia.
As part of our Indigenous Engagement program, in 2016 a team of local and interstate filmmakers and researchers began work on a documentary film about the life and legacy of one of our resident living treasures: Ngunnawal Elder Aunty Agnes Shea. Footprints on Our Land tells the story of Aunty Agnes’ life, as recalled by her family and friends.
Spaces and Places
Our Spaces and Places program is taking art and creativity to the streets, presenting cultural activities and performances in urban spaces beyond the walls of Tuggeranong Arts Centre. Join us, as we make and show art in places you least expect! Find out more information on how you can participate in our Spaces and Places.
Invisible Borders explores migration, citizenship, racism, refugee experiences and government immigration policy. In consultation with a range of community groups and individuals, the topics that challenge so many of us and the rights of humans in our global society are being explored in a variety of arts based projects.
