Join a guided tour of The Country Cries for Truth, a new exhibition celebrating the work of Dr Bronwyn Bancroft, with exhibition curator Cherokee Lord. This powerful and personal exhibition by distinguished Bundjalung artist Dr Bronwyn Bancroft celebrates family and connection to Country, while exploring the complex and painful legacies of colonisation.

This tour will meet in the exhibition (First Floor, First Nations Gallery, Mitchell Building)

 

Cherokee Lord is a Bundjalung and Gamilaraay woman with family ties to Casino and Tabulam in the Northern Rivers of NSW. She has been part of the State Library’s Indigenous Engagement branch for five years. During that time, she has worked on projects like the Koori Knockout: 50 Years exhibition. She was also involved in the Create NSW Digitisation pilot project assisting four Aboriginal Cultural Centres and Keeping Places across NSW to embed sustainable digitisation practices. The Country Cries for Truth: Dr Bronwyn Bancroft is her debut exhibition as curator.
