AHC Cultural Centre
Venue: AHC's Art and Cultural centre, Mungejup
Aboriginal Housing Company (AHC) are driving an Indigenous-led economy that will sustain Australia’s creative, cultural, and economic interests and provides future generations access to build their legacy. AHC are celebrating 50 years of empowering Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander communities, growing from a small public housing project to an awarded-large scale developer that’s changing Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islanders’ futures. 50 years of growth and impact made possible by the culture and creativity of 65,000 years before it. 50 years of creating opportunities for future generations to thrive.
The official completion of the Pemulwuy project in Redfern was the focal point of the Aboriginal Housing Company's 50th birthday celebrations, and also the opening of AHC's new Art and Cultural centre, Mungejup. This exhibition was created by Kyra Kum-sing from Boomalli Aboriginal Art Gallery & Jess Cook from 107 Projects Inc. Everyone is welcome to visit and enjoy the exhibition on display, which was created in consultation with the community, who wanted the area to celebrate its Aboriginal culture and history; a place that is green and cool with native trees and plants; a safe place to move around and play; where people feel a sense of connection and belonging.
