The Art of Healing Gifts
The ‘Art of Healing’ gift range illustrates Indigenous healing methods of the Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander communities.
For 65,000 years, Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples have occupied the lands, with distinct cultural boundaries defined by intimate relationships with Country. Through contemporary art, communities share examples of healing practice and bush medicine from many distinct and varied Indigenous communities across Australia.
The range features selected works from the University of Melbourne Medical History Museum Collection.
The University of Melbourne acknowledges the Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander traditional owners of the unceded land on which we work and learn. We pay respect to the Elders, past and present, and the place of Indigenous knowledge in the academy.
