Nguram-bang: Home District was an exhibition of work created by students from Finley Public School, Gundagai South Public School, Rand Public School and Wewak Street School who participated in the Nguam-bang arts & language education program.

The exhibition formed part of the broader Nguram-bang program that builds on the education resource HOME program produced by the Art Gallery of NSW.

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

Some of the works in the exhibition were the result of a workshop with local Wiradjuri artists Uncle Allan Murray and Brendon Kennedy. Students created bark huts, weaving, and drawings inspired by the artists.

Nguram-bang students also explored the works of Lorraine Connelly-Northey, Jonathan Jones and Tommy McRae, as they explored 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.
