Showcasing pieces from the Australian Museum's 40,000 piece collection, and featuring contemporary audio-visual storytelling and personal narratives, this exhibition captures the diversity of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander art and culture from the Dreaming to the present day.

It's a fascinating look at the history, culture and political struggles of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people - the oldest living culture in the world.

This popular exhibition places a strong emphasis on the strength of Indigenous cultures and their connection to the land. The experience is divided into six themes: spirituality, cultural heritage, archaeology, family, land and social justice.

It demonstrates how Australia's Indigenous cultures have survived for so long by adapting over time - despite the impact of more than two hundred years of European colonisation.
