Koori Art Expressions - Bright Future

Koori Art Expressions 2019

Visual artworks created by students from Sydney public schools.

Now in its 14th year.

Koori Art Expressions is a selection of highly imaginative visual artworks created by Sydney school students from kindergarten to year 12. 

Inspired by the 2019 NAIDOC Week theme, 'Voice, Treaty, Truth', over 75 works are featured in this exhibition. While developing the artworks, students reflect on the unique connection Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people have to country and how the achievements of the past inform and further our aspirations and plans for the future. 

The 'Uluru Statement of the Heart' also influenced the students, with many of the artworks highlighting the importance of allowing space for voices to be heard, and to respect the land and the knowledge it holds.

Paintings, photography, textiles, sculptures and videos are among the diverse works on display.
