Tarnanthi Festival and Art Fair

Canberra's Arts Summit & ANU Residency 
Recently, Marisa Maher (Admin Art Assistant) traveled with Gloria Pannka and Lenie Namatjira to Canberra for the Rights of Culture Summit, facilitated by Creating Australia.  This event was held at the Parliament House with guest speakers from across the nation. This time in Canberra was also the opportunity for Gloria and Lenie to visit the National Museum of Australia with writer Alison French. They viewed many artworks from descendants of their family. Gloria and Lenie also facilitated workshops for art students from the Australian National University, and learned new techiques in etching, painting, drawing and printing.
