One of the key themes in our Yirrkala drawings exhibition is the idea of collaboration. Tonight, we are thrilled to welcome the return of Peter Garrett to Art After Hours. The former Midnight Oil front man joins us to reflect on both his musical collaborations with Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander communities and his passionate campaigning for their rights. Gallery conservator Sarah Bunn shares stories she has learnt about the rarely seen Yirrkala works.
