Nghadi Ngurang: My Home was an exhibition of work created by students from Brocklesby Public School, Gerogery Public School, Jindera Public School, Table Top Public School, Tumbarumba Public School, Yerong Creek Public School and Wewak Street School who participated in the Nghadi Ngurang arts & language education program.

The exhibition formed part of the broader Nghadi Ngurang program that built on the education resource Home produced by the Art Gallery of NSW and is a partnership between MAMA, the Art Gallery of NSW and the NSW Department of Education's Arts Unit.

Students were encouraged to learn about nationally recognised Wiradjuri artists, and were given opportunities to engage locally with arts, language & culture.

Some of the works in the exhibition were the result of a workshop with local artist Brendon Kennedy. Students created eel traps, weaving, and drawings inspired by the artists.

Nghadi Ngurang students also explored the works of Lorraine Connelly-Northey, Jonathan Jones and Tommy McRae, by exploring the MAMA collection and the Home education resource. Students enjoyed a virtual tour of The Art Gallery of NSW and participated in a virtual workshop with Jonathan Jones. Wiradjuri language lessons were also held as part of the program, led by Ruth Davys and Dr Pettina Love.
