"This painting is about my family, love, Country.
The small shapes of three people around a meeting circle are for me, my big sister and my baby brother.
The wiggly lines are the river and us sitting at the river to fish and swim. My people are freshwater and saltwater people and the rivers that run through Country are important to us.
The big shapes representing people are my Dad and Mum. They protect us and watch over us.
The handprint is about my connection to the earth and the stars." - Ryder

04/01/2024

Before embarking on Blak Design, Sean had been tossing around ideas related to a favourite Dreamtime story of the black crow, known as Waa among Kulin nations and Waan on Sean’s Gamilaroi Country. ‘These stories travelled up and down the east coast. It is a well-known story but for Blak Design I decided to write my own poem about how Waan turned black.’ In the verse, he details how Waan the crow has gleaming white feathers, but also secretly possesses fire for cooking meat. When other birds go on the attack, Waan fights back; but his fire is spilled, and he is scorched black. But in the process, fire is discovered. This poem was the basis for his Blak Design work, and a large black crow is at the centre of the fiery-glazed piece, which is more than a metre in height and augmented with lighting to accentuate the glow of flames.

The Shield and Nulla Nulla represent the power of a Warrior. The Warrior is the protector, provider, carer and sharer of his people. This position is one that is earned, through demonstrating a deeper part of the circle of growth, learning to be respectful and humble, then you are ready. You can assist and love but you can’t overuse your power. The power maintains the balance, keeping it close, the balance of life. Leading by role modelling, representing your values, on our journey.

During the walk, you will learn about the Aboriginal history of the Birrarung Marr (Beside the river of mists) and the Aboriginal Peoples of the Kulin Nation, guided by one of our experienced Cultural Experiences Guides. They will explain how the land on which Melbourne stands has changed over time and the significance of the Birrarung Wilam to the local Kulin peoples. This will deepen your understanding of this incredible location, which is an important gathering place for the Kulin Nation and one of Melbourne’s most popular meeting hubs today.

02/01/2024

Trina says the act of weaving holds deep significance in Aboriginal culture, representing the interconnections between family, Country, and ancestral knowledge. Likewise, the art of ceramic clay works is a testament to the resourcefulness and adaptability of Aboriginal ancestors. By intertwining these two art forms, she says she is highlighting the shared threads, and emphasising the harmonious relationship between human existence and the earth, and the importance of sustainability and honouring cultural heritage.

22/12/2023

"I had this idea to incorporate a snake in my artwork because I was inspired by the strength in which my Great Uncle, Graham Dicker, demonstrated within his professional boxing career. The snake represents the strength and progression my uncle has demonstrated and provided for the generations in my family and the Indigenous community surrounding him. I decided to incorporate boxing gloves as my medium, as I thought it clearly represented the fight in which Indigenous people endure each and every day in society. Indigenous people consistently fight to work towards achieving the rights that they deserve. As a member of the Indigenous community, we fight to be heard and listened to. Learning about my Great Uncle's story, and how he pushed through the discrimination and difficult parts of his career inspired me to take action to encourage other young Indigenous people to embrace their own culture and family history." - Charlotte

21/12/2023

One of the recurring themes in all of Suzanne’s work is the story of the Seven Sisters, the famous cluster of stars visible in the Southern Hemisphere that is often referred to (in various iterations) in stories and cultural material of many First Nations people around the continent. As Suzanne thought about this, ideas began to evolve including the integration of weaving patterns into the work, along with representations of the Seven Sisters, and usage of the emu feathers that have always graced Suzanne’s weaving works.

One of the underlying ideas was to explore the idea of a board game, which has various rules and restrictions, as a metaphor for the way European arrival in Australia was an experience of invasion with the sudden imposition of new and unknown ‘laws’. "These were rules that we couldn’t understand and had to figure out."

‘Ceramics is so technical, and I wanted to know everything, inside and out – but it was so overwhelming because it would take years to understand all the science of glazes...

At the heart of the KHT are our Collections of artworks and artefacts, photographs, oral history recordings and a reference library. Our Collections are unique because we focus solely on representing the First Peoples culture of South-Eastern Australia including the broader Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander diaspora who live in Victoria.

You can view our rotating Collections display on Level 3 of the Birrarung Building, as well as in our new Collections display cabinets on Level 2.

As part of the celebrations to mark our expansion, we also commissioned Aunty Glenda Nicholls (Waddi Waddi, Ngarrindjeri and Yorta Yorta) to create a special feather flower sculpture that will form part of our unique feather flower collection. Aunty Glenda's feather flower sculpture can be viewed for a limited time in the entry foyer to the Birrarung Building over the holiday season.

Our Story

The late Ron Castan AM QC, Ron Merkel QC and a respected Koorie elder established the Koorie Heritage Trust in 1985. We were registered as an incorporated association in 1992. 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. We will continue to innovate and transition the development and delivery of our services. Over the next three years, we will raise our revenue base in order to build on our successes and deliver outstanding opportunities to Koorie and non-Koorie communities. Anticipating and embracing advances in digital technology, we will provide best practice client service delivery and meaningful engagement with Koorie young people who are active users of digital technology. 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. We see ourselves as a place for everyone; a unique space in which Koorie and non-Koorie people can experience, learn, connect and reconnect with the rich, living Aboriginal culture, heritage and histories of Victoria in a safe environment. We see ourselves as a knowledge bank and vital community resource, as much a physical as well as a virtual place for sharing, learning, collaborating and creating.
