    Make time for the Hawkesbury Regional Museum’s essential group venture, Bangadyi Nawi, on Saturday, 18 November 2023 at the Museum.

    Everyone is inspired to participate in the collaborative event by the Museum, the Dharug Community, and the Brewongle Environmental Education Centre.

    The Welcome to Country ceremony will be led by Erin Wilkins, followed by an Official Opening by Hawkesbury Councilor and Deputy Mayor Barry Calvert at eleven:30 AM.

    “The project has provided a transformative experience for local Aboriginal highschool students who created a standard canoe during an inter-generational camp, led by Elder Uncle Dean Kelly and with Uncle David Payne and Dharug Educator Erin Wilkins,” the announcement indicated.

    “As a model new exhibit, the canoe will shape learning opportunities for the whole group.”

    The Saturday event is free of cost and could be booked on-line through Eventbrite: Celebration of Bangadyi Nawi and Opening of Canoe Exhibit. Light refreshments shall be supplied.

    The Museum was additionally nominated just lately at the IMAGinE Awards 2023 by the Museums & Galleries of NSW for its engagement program called “Bangadyi Nawi Making Making a Canoe.”

    Bangadyi Nawi & Museum Opening of Canoe Exhibit is situated at 8 Baker Street in Windsor.
