When a collection of Carrolup artworks came home to Nyungar Country in 2013, a unique and precious resource was returned to Western Australia.

Lost overseas for more than 60 years, the exquisite artworks by young children of the Stolen Generations offer a rare glimpse into the lived experiences of Aboriginal children at a time when systemic racism and discrimination under Government policies tore Indigenous families and culture apart.

Curtin University is now embarking upon an ambitious project to create a permanent, protective home for these artworks that will become a centre for truth-telling and reconciliation in perpetuity.

Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people are warned that photographs/videos on this website contain images of deceased persons, which may cause sadness or distress.
