WE present illustrated talks, lectures and in conversations with artists on a wide range of Australian art, to art groups and societies, gallery guides and member groups of state, regional, public and private galleries and many public, private and community organisations.  

Our comprehensive illustrated talks and lectures on Indigenous art have become especially popular in both the private and public sectors. All of our own exhibitions and those we co-curate feature illustrated lectures, curators' floor talks and frequently conversations with artists, curators and authors.

Topics include:

•   Regional developments in Indigenous art
•   Mythology in Aboriginal art
•   Symbols, mark making and colour in Indigenous art
•   Market trends
•   Australian art from the historical to the contemporary
