NGV TEMPORARY CLOSURE

From our team here at NGV, we’d like to express our very best wishes to our community at this time.

Due to the evolving nature of COVID-19 and after following closely the State and Federal Government’s advice, we have extended the NGV’s temporary closure until 30 June.

If you have pre-purchased tickets for current exhibitions or upcoming programs, our team will be in contact with you shortly to arrange full refunds.

We encourage you to visit our website and follow #NGVEveryDay on social media for updates and daily inspiration.

We are very grateful for the loyalty and understanding of the NGV community and wish everyone well during this time.

The Maribyrnong river and its tributaries connects many language groups of the Kulin nation, delineating boundaries, trade routes, songlines and formed a major meeting place for the Boonwurrung, Woiwurrung, Dja Dja Wurrung and Tanguarong people.

How has the Maribyrnong changed since colonisation? What can the built environment learn from millennia of Indigenous water management to help manage population growth, water quality and scarcity, as well as protecting the vital cultural habits and practices that define place and belonging for all Australians?

Join Indigenous elders, architects, urban planners and policy makers at the Footscray Community Arts Centre amphitheatre, to discuss how we will re-evaluate our approach to water in the face of huge climate upheaval.
