Ngara – Ngurangwa Byallara
Ngara – Ngurangwa Byallara (Listen, hear, think – The Place Speaks), is an initiative to acknowledge and honour the history of the Blacktown Native Institution Site in Oakhurst, Western Sydney. This is one of the earliest known Australian facilities for the institutional removal of Aboriginal children from their families.
This project is an initiative of the MCA in conjunction with Blacktown Arts Centre and local Aboriginal communities, who collaboratively produced a living memorial of the Stolen Generations.
Sophie spoke with Anne Loxley, Senior Curator of the Museum of Contemporary Art’s C3 West initiative.
