Throughout the week the Library will be filled with interesting displays of artworks to celebrate and recognise Aboriginal culture, heritage and contributing to the community.

Professor Anna Haebich, an award-winning Australian historian and author with her associate Elfie Shiosaki, will present a fascinating overview of their Ancestors Words project. The evening will include wine and bush tucker at a cost of $5 per person.

Later in the week, the Library will screen two short films from the Australian Black Screen collection, ‘Lurujarri Dreaming’ and ‘The Farm’.

Friday morning will see award-winning writer and author of the critically acclaimed ‘The Day of the Dog’, Archie Weller share the story of his life and writings at a free event which will include morning tea.
