Looking Through Windows was an oral history and multimedia project that explored the removal, dispossession and ‘protection’ of Aboriginal people in NSW. Elders participated in Elders Gatherings and multimedia workshops where they shared lots stories about growing up and living on the Mission, reserves and fringe camps. Creative outcomes from this project were presented as multimedia exhibitions and performances at the New England Regional Art Museum (Armidale), Diggers on the Darling (Bourke) and 107 (Redfern, Sydney). Additional creative outcomes include a CD and exhibition catalogue.
