Summary "This report explores the reasons behind the 'hidden history' of Aboriginal art in south-east Australia and the continuing practice of art among Aboriginal people, mainly in Victoria, and the changes and adaptations to art practices that were often made in response to the colonising process. The recent practice of reclaiming or reinvigorating art styles from the past and developing these within contemporary artworks is also significant in continuing the story of Aboriginal art in the region. The stories included here, told by Aboriginal artists and curators, also explore the significance of art practices in maintaining south-east Australian Aboriginal culture, identity and wellbeing."
