The Aboriginal community is weaving stories into a new sculptural piece, physically and metaphorically. This sculpture will be created to pay respect to mahn (Sydney’s fisherwomen) and to share the history and culture of Gadigal people.

You are invited to see the sculpture and contribute to the piece by making your own woven fishhook with Aboriginal staff.

It's a chance to experience GADI – our new exhibition about the rich culture of Aboriginal Sydney.

Recommended for ages 12+.

This event is part of Weave, our Festival of Aboriginal and Pacific Cultures.
