SAPPERS & SHRAPNEL
11 November 2016 - 29 January 2017
The Sappers & Shrapnel learning program assists educators in supporting students’ exploration, engagement, and understanding of Trench Art, objects made from the waste of warfare - objects crafted by soldiers, civilians and prisoners of war. This project invites contemporary artists to produce new work in response to the Australian War Memorial’s collection of Trench Art, which includes items made during the First World War by Australian and New Zealand servicemen and women and Turkish prisoners of war.
Learning programs are aligned with the Australian Curriculum: Visual Arts learning area, and connect to the general capabilities and cross curriculum priority areas.
Exhibition visits available for educators and F-12 students.

Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander histories and culture
In this 2 hour learning program (developed for NAIDOC Week), students visit both the Migration Museum galleries and the Art Gallery of South Australia collections. Learning outcomes focus on reflection and analysis of South Australia’s 60,000 year plus rich history.
In this 1 hour learning program students are taken through the Migration Museum galleries separately by two different presenters and told the history of South Australia from two different perspectives- the Aboriginal perspective and the Colonisers perspectives using the same galleries.
Students are challenged to think critically about their own perspectives and opinions, to question texts and sources, to identify bias and to discuss whose story is being told.
