Touring exhibitions for hire


Explore First Nations storytelling, mythology, language and creativity through the lens of Australia’s critically acclaimed Indigenous, superhero TV series, Cleverman.

Visitors are welcomed into the Bindawu Spirit listening space, to hear the key Dreaming stories underpinning the series, and to explore behind-the-scenes interviews with cast and crew, original artwork, props and video content – revealing how this incredible series was made.

Conceived and developed in close consultation with a multidisciplinary Indigenous Advisory Group, and First Nations curator Kathrine Clarke, Cleverman was co-curated with series concept creator Ryan Griffen and production designer Jacob Nash.
