Casino Wake Up Time


Learn with Bundjalung collective and 23rd Biennale of Sydney participant Casino Wake Up Time through our exclusive four-part digital series created especially for students and educators.

Book in for an Educator-Led or Self-Guided tour of the exhibition and experience Casino Wake Up Time’s work at The Cutaway at Barangaroo and Pier 2/3 Walsh Bay Arts Precinct. Extend upon your learning back in the classroom through a holistic journey that takes you to Bundjalung Country where you will meet Casino Wake Up Time. Throughout the video series, the artists share sustainable harvesting and cultivating practices, and celebrate women’s work through the continuation of culture. Also hear from local Elders as they share cherished stories and memories of their local waterways and their Country.
