Overview

From Grande Experiences, creators and producers of Van Gogh Alive, the most-visited multi-sensory exhibition in the world, comes the world premiere of a new art experience celebrating the spirit of Indigenous Australia.  

Using 360-degree large-scale projections and cutting-edge light and sound technology, this is visual storytelling as you’ve never seen it before. Artworks from over 70 Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander artists are transformed into one powerfully rich story of culture and Country. 

Connection: Songlines from Australia’s First Nations Peoples is a spectacular, first-of-its-kind experience that simply cannot be missed. It explores the spiritual connections to land, water and sky through a vibrant and multi-sensory symphony of sound, light and colour. State-of-the-art technology is used to create an immersive exhibition space, enveloping you in large-scale projections and cinematic surround sound. 

Developed in partnership with the National Museum of Australia, the artistic line-up represents the wonderful diversity of Australia’s First Nations Peoples, showcasing work from traditional and contemporary artists across the country such as Barbara Weir, Lin Onus, Minnie Pwerle, and Albert Namatjira.
