Terra inFirma

A group of people viewing art in an exhibition

Presented during the 250th commemorative year of James Cook’s arrival in Botany Bay, Terra inFirma reveals knowledge about our region and wider cultural histories. Featuring works by some of our country’s most exciting artists, this year long program examines how the arrival of Cook has impacted on Dharug Peoples and communities from our Asia Pacific region, now living in Blacktown. Central to this program is the knowledge that this land was never ceded. Through personal journeys, intimate artworks and shared experiences, this program presents Cook’s arrival as an act of transgression, offering perspectives beyond the legacy of European expansionism.
