Coota Girls Aboriginal Corporation invites you to experience ‘Secrets of Dawn’, a truth-telling exhibition. Dawn Magazine was created by the Aborigines Welfare Board (1940-1969) as “a magazine for the Aboriginal people of New South Wales”, highlighting the work of the Board, sharing photos and stories from stations, reserves and training institutions throughout New South Wales. There are over 100 references to the Cootamundra Domestic Training Home for Aboriginal Girls (1912-1969) across all volumes of Dawn Magazine. Secrets of Dawn features content from Dawn Magazine alongside contemporary works from Coota Girls Survivors and descendants, exposing the tactics used under the Aborigines Protection Act (1909-1969) to progress the agenda of assimilation of First Nations people. Created and Directed by Meagan Gerrard (Wailwan Gamilaroi) and Alex McWhirter from Coota Girls Aboriginal Corporation. Curated by Dennis Golding (Kamilaroi/Gamilaraay). ... See MoreSee Less
