Walaaybaa (Home) Program

Developed in partnership between the Department of Education, the Art Gallery of NSW and Tamworth Regional Gallery.

WALAAYBAA (HOME ) is a regional outreach education program that delivers sustained educational content and experiences introducing local Aboriginal art practice to primary school teachers, students and their wider communities. Twelve schools from across our region have taken part in the HOME program. This exhibition features the works of the students from the participating schools.

In 2021, the Tamworth Regional Gallery is proud to deliver a bigger and broader Walaaybaa | HOME exhibition.  It is delivered through participating local primary schools across many First Nations regions in regional NSW. This will be the fourth year that Tamworth Regional Gallery has the privilege to be involved. The program is a highlight of the galleries calendar and does what good art should do, inspire both viewers and participants to; discover new ideas, challenge old thinking and provide opportunity to make human connections, all the while making beautiful artworks.

We invite you all to come along and see the amazing work of our young people.
