Marra Marra Badhang exhibition

Today we attended the opening of the Marra Marra Badhang exhibition at Charles Sturt University. The exhibition was launched with a smoking ceremony by Wiradyuri Elders and opened by the Bathurst Mayor and Charles Sturt University Vice-Chancellor. The exhibition includes the Bathurst Wiradyuri and Aboriginal community possum skin cloaks, alongside Indigenous artwork from the CSU art collection.  The exhibition is part of the 2015 NADIOC celebrations and the Bathurst Bicentenary.
