GEGAC’s Keeping Place and Cultural Business Coordinator, Rob Hudson.
Did you know more than 600 students and teachers from primary and secondary schools across Gippsland visited the Krowathunkooloong Keeping Place at GEGAC in the first half of this year?
The Keeping Place houses a broad collection of artifacts, artworks, storytelling and historical records of the Gunaikurnai people, spanning the long history of the original custodians of this land.
The Keeping Place is not a museum, but a living place of discovery, and it is playing a key role in raising awareness of the history of the Gunaikurnai people, and building a better appreciation of Aboriginal culture, history and heritage.
One of the key ways it does this by hosting visits from schools and community groups, which are led by GEGAC’s Keeping Place and Cultural Business Coordinator, Rob Hudson.
In addition to the school visits, Rob and the Keeping Place have also welcomed visits in the past year from Monash University, BRHS, GLCH, Latrobe City Council, GLaWAC, Parks Victoria, DELWP, East Gippsland Water, the East Gippsland Community Foundation, and VACCHO.
Have you taken a tour of the Keeping Place?
Perhaps your school or community group could benefit from a closer understanding of Gunaikurnai culture?
