The Home program is a partnership between Wiradjuri community at Wagga Wagga, The Arts Unit, NSW Department of Education, Wagga Wagga Art Gallery and the Art Gallery of NSW, and connects schools to local Aboriginal artists, community, language and culture.

The program was first developed in 2015 when education outreach program was developed based on the major education resource Home: Aboriginal art from New South Wales, published by the Gallery in 2013.

The program was delivered to 7 schools in Wiradjuri country and featured professional learning for teachers, regional gallery staff and local artists, the delivery of a bespoke visual arts program for Stage 3 students over three school terms, virtual excursions to the Art Gallery of New South Wales and a student exhibition of the resulting artwork at Wagga Wagga Art Gallery.

Since then, the Home program has grown to reach over 30 schools in Wiradjuri and Kamilaroi country and is currently based at four regional galleries: Wagga Wagga Art Gallery, Bathurst Regional Art Gallery, Murray Art Museum Albury and Tamworth Regional Gallery.

Artist quote

The Home program has not just included the community but has provided the opportunity for community to be part of the planning and delivery. This has an ongoing effect for all students to take home the Wiradjuri culture. It’s not only the culture and arts practice but students also have an opportunity they would not otherwise have had. In the four years I have been involved I have learnt so much from the Home education kit at the Art Gallery of New South Wales and am looking forward to sharing and learning in the future.

— Aunty Lorraine Tye, Wiradjuri Elder, Wagga Wagga
