As part of Education Week 2018, The National Gallery of Victoria is delighted to offer students in levels 3–6 a free visit to the exhibition Colony: Australia 1770-1861. This offer includes an introduction to the exhibition by an NGV educator, who will take students on a journey into Australia’s colonial past through discussion of intriguing artworks, compelling stories and cultural objects that bring Australian history to life.
Drawing from public and private collections across the country, Colony: Australia 1770–1861 brings together the most important examples of art and design produced during this period and surveys the key settlements and development of life and culture in the colonies. Importantly, the exhibition acknowledges the impact of European settlement on Indigenous communities.
