To add to your excursion experience, Wagga Wagga Art Gallery is also offering the opportunity for students to participate in Fishing Under the Moon, a community engagement project woven around Indigenous hunter-gatherer practices that utilized astronomical indicators such as fish feeding around the moon cycles.
Come along to this interactive exhibition and celebrate the ancient Indigenous technology of weaving. You'll learn to weave fish using natural grasses such as Lomandra Longifolia.
Take your creations home or add them to our installation celebrating First Nations know-how and knowledge.
