Join our curators on a tour of First Nations art, stories and activism through our centrepiece exhibition.
First Nations' storytelling plays a central role in the past, present and future of the moving image. This tour will look at a range of works created by First Nations artists and filmmakers and the different ways they tell their stories with moving image.
