This project has been assisted by the New South Wales Government through Create NSW.
Kids and families are invited to participate in a guided gallery experience and art-making workshop. Taking inspiration from artist Salote Tawale’s focus on identity and memory, children will draw from their own memories to create a collaborative artwork from everyday materials.

Share in a talanoa with artist Salote Tawale and academic and social worker Jioji Ravulo, reflecting on their experiences of identity within queer communities and as part of the Pacific diaspora. Situated around the vale (family house) at the centre of I remember you, the conversation will focus on collectivism as central to Indigenous knowledge systems.
