Event Description: Throughout the Canning Stock Route Project art centres, artists and contributors have been directly involved in the project’s development and the delivery of its final outcomes. As content was being finalised for Yiwarra Kuju: The Canning Stock Route at the National Museum of Australia, content approval workshops were undertaken in 17 communities to ensure that artists and elders were satisfied with the accuracy and cultural appropriateness of its content. These visits engaged contributing artists with the layout, content and presentation of the final exhibition, multimedia and publications. Important decisions were made during these approvals, which allowed the project team to adjust and finalise content that would not only be presented to national audiences but would become a legacy for communities into the future.
