Tour artwork highlights of the exhibition and learn about how curator Danni Zuvela and leading First Nations artists Libby Harward, Archie Moore and Mandy Quadrio have responded to the vitality of water as sustenance, and the political commodification of water as a resource.  

Come along and have a tea, coffee, or a fermented seaweed brew made by WATER RITES artist and microbiologist Lucien Alperstein. 

WATER RITES is presented as part of Tarnanthi: Festival of Contemporary Aboriginal & Torres Strait Islander Art.
