Eora College: Celebrating 30 years

Eora College: Celebrating 30 years

Eora College has been a part of local and state wide Aboriginal communities since July 6, 1984 from both its Redfern, and more recently, purpose-built Darlington campus. As the first Aboriginal College in NSW, Eora College has had tremendous success with providing quality Aboriginal education across the state.

Below is their first exhibition poster from 1987, which is kept in the Mitchell Library Sydney.

The Eora Centre has nurtured a range of practising visual artists including Roy Kennedy, H J Wedge and Euphemia Bostock. Many went on to be involved with the Boomalli artists’ cooperative, while others now have their works exhibited at the Yiribana Gallery at the Art Gallery of NSW (See Barani).

On Monday 15th September, Sydney’s Eora College will proudly celebrate its 30th Anniversary in the presence of The Governor of NSW, Her Excellency Professor The Honourable Dame Marie Bashir AC CVO.
