A feature in CBD News about our new exhibition “Layers of Blak” spotlighting Nikki Browne (Bidjara).

💬 “My sculpture pieces are always predominantly related to Country and everything has to have a message and a story, so normally my stories are about protecting the environment, our waterways, and our Country,” she said.

Time Out Melbourne featuring our new exhibition "Layers of Blak" featuring 11 First Nations creatives who have immersed themselves in our Blak Design Program this year.

Award-winning Yorta Yorta artist Lorraine Brigdale said the experience of being mentored by such experienced jewellers was liberating: “The processes I learned have added greatly to my handwork skills and will be a big part in creating a new direction in any art that I can build on in the future.”

“My work for the exhibition is centred around remembering our ancestors and the strength and determination it took for them to get us to this point where we can hold our heads high at last, and we will never forget them.”

After almost a year of dedicated work, exploration, skill-building, story-telling and coming together, our 2022 cohort of Blak Designers have created a body of work which is our new exhibition “Layers of Blak” opening this Saturday 1 Oct.

We are one of the oldest Aboriginal cultural organisations in Australia offering the following nationally unique programs:

• Collections Program – we have the only collection in Australia dedicated to the Aboriginal culture of South-Eastern Australia (numbering nearly 95,000 items including cultural artefacts and objects, contemporary sculpture, paintings, prints, photographs and a reference library). The Collections are significant, extensive and irreplaceable, and comprise pre-contact, historic and contemporary items from south–eastern Australia. The Collections provide a tangible link to connect the community to the past and assist in the ongoing building of Aboriginal culture in Victoria.

• Koorie Family History Service Program – we offer a family history service for Koorie members of the stolen generation that is a national leader in the field of Aboriginal genealogy and family history research.

• Oral History Program – our oral History program has been running since 1987 with the intention of capturing knowledge and stories of culture on behalf of the Koorie community. The Program includes a collection that encompasses some 1600 audio and visual recordings of Koorie people from across the state.

• Exhibitions Program – at the Trust, we facilitate the sharing of Aboriginal art and support emerging and established Aboriginal artists through an extensive exhibitions program. In addition, we host travelling exhibitions. Many exhibitions are accompanied by artist floor talks and some by targeted workshops teaching specific arts practice skills.

• Education Program – our education programs include tours of the Trust, cultural walks along the Birrarung (Yarra River), and professional development sessions for teachers. Our Backing Aboriginal Cultural Awareness program (BACC) is offered within the framework of professional development to major Federal, State and Local Government departments as well as to the public and to the corporate sector. The program complements the Reconciliation Action Plans of many corporate and Government bodies.

• shopKOORIE – our shop, provides a wide range of products including boomerangs, didgeridoos, artworks, basketry, music and clothing, many hand-made by local Aboriginal arts practitioners. Through our focus on local products we assist in educating tourists and the public on local Koorie culture. The retail shop also supports emerging Aboriginal artists.

Our Collections, Koorie Family History Service, Exhibitions and Oral History Programs are core to our business. Whilst also supporting our vision and purpose, our Education Program and shopKOORIE operate on a fee-for-service basis to generate revenue for our general operations. In addition to these fee-for-service activities, we also hire our spaces for use by external organisations.

As reflected in the profile of our original founders, our current staff and Board represent reconciliation in action with both Koorie and non-Koorie people working to meet our Vision and Purpose and acting in ways that reflect our Values. We are an Aboriginal owned and managed not-for-profit organisation. We celebrated our 25th anniversary in 2010, and we look forward to celebrating our 30th anniversary in 2015. We are justifiability proud to have been operating for over 25 years. We offer a unique range of programs and services to promote, support and celebrate the Aboriginal culture of South-Eastern Australia. As a not-for-profit, we source funding from the State and Federal Governments as well as private, philanthropic and corporate sponsorship and support. To achieve long-term financial sustainability and stability we have over the years to diversified our programs to include revenue generation business areas to support our operational and core programs. We have a wealth of skills and expertise including cultural knowledge, community and corporate networks, collection management, curatorial, education and research experience. We are keen to move forward as a bold and adventurous 21st century organisation offering an inclusive and welcoming place for all.

At the same time, we will embrace technology to record the memories of our elders for the benefit of present and future Koorie and non-Koorie generations. Our key Strategic Objectives to Engage, Grow, Reach, Enrich and Develop, support our Collections, Family History Service and Exhibitions, which are our core business areas. Our core business areas facilitate the participation of the Koorie and wider Victorian Aboriginal communities in our programs and services, and promote cultural exchange amongst Aboriginal communities and between all Victorians.
