Gulbalahna: know and understand each other is an exciting and innovative exhibition from students and teachers participating in the program of the same name. This program presented by The Arts Unit of the NSW Department of Education in partnership with the Art Gallery of NSW and Wagga Wagga Art Gallery, has been running over three terms of this year with a selection of the work produced culminating in this exhibition.

Gulbalahna: know and understand each other is a visual arts program that brought together schools in Wiradjuri Country to engage with The Art Gallery of NSW and Wagga Wagga Art Gallery's collections and included opportunities to make connections with local Wiradjuri artists, artworks and language.

The reception and participation in the program has been truly amazing, with many wonderful outcomes for all participants. In particular, the gallery was delighted that fourteen regional public primary schools, Uranquinty, Hume, Lowesdale, Ardlethan, Talbingo, Tumut, Gundagai, Rand, Walla Walla, Balranald, Tumbarumba, Finley, Kapooka, and Lockhart participated so enthusiastically throughout, creating an amazing array of diverse artworks.

Wagga Wagga Art Gallery welcomes all to this celebration of creativity, diversity and engagement of schools, galleries and communities. There is so much to be seen from prints and paintings to beautifully woven objects. Come along and discover the hidden stories, talents and visions of our region's next generation of artists.

Gulbalahna: know and understand each other will be officially launched on Saturday 17 September at 1pm.
