The Empty Coolamon Exhibition is at Bunjilaka Aboriginal Cultural Centre at Melbourne Museum until October 5th. Indigenous artist Robyne Latham brings recognition of the stolen generations in the exhibition. Coolamons were traditionally used by Aboriginal women to collect water and food and to cradle new born babies. Empty Coolamons responds to a significant historical issue and invites audiences to pause and reflect, with the intention of achieving a sense of reconciliation for Indigenous and Non Indigenous Australians.
