A Taste of Australia @ Australian Embassy Gala

Embassy of Australia cordially request the pleasure of your company for an opportunity to attend a gala dinner with dancing to a live band. The evening includes a dinner feast including Australian beer served at the open bar. Come on your own or with friends to meet, network, and mingling with others while discovering Australia.

You will also be invited to a special viewing of 28 outstanding paintings from Papunya, Yuendumu and Balgo. “Circles in the Sand” celebrates some of Australia’s most creative Indigenous communities. Historically, much of the art from the desert was painted on the body or drawn in the sand. Since the 1970s these ephemeral images have been produced in permanent contemporary art forms, specifically acrylic paintings on board and canvas. During the last 40 years this art has grown into an art movement of global significance.
