“Namatjira Project is hypnotic. Don’t miss it.” –Richard Glover, ABC Radio Sydney
As many of you will know, the fight for copyright was an 8 year campaign Big hART ran with the Namatjira family, which produced our award-winning theatre production, countless exhibitions, workshops, an app and even a meeting with the Queen.
Farming Secrets helped fund this project to bring it to fruition. The result was overwhelmingly wonderful!
Don’t miss the ABC TV premiere this Sunday night, of this acclaimed film which helped make history – Namatjira Project.
Airing on ABC TV this Sunday at 9:30pm, the film will then be available to stream for 1 month on ABC iview.
