About the project:

The Cooks River Catchment Aboriginal History Project was undertaken by history and heritage firm MDCA on behalf of the Cooks River Alliance between May 2016 and May 2017. The project grew out of the Alliance’s desire to know more about the Aboriginal history of the catchment. As part of the project, video interviews were recorded of twelve Aboriginal people with a connection to the river, together with photographic portraits.

This is a free community exhibition.

We respectfully acknowledge the Traditional Custodians of the Cooks River catchment, together with other Aboriginal people who have made it their home.
