To celebrate "Unknown Land", join AWESOME Arts and the Art Gallery of Western Australia to celebrate our city, and show your vision of our state.

How do we see ourselves now, nearly 200 years from European settlement?

After looking at some of the historical images of Western Australian places and scenes in the exhibition "Unknown Land" try your hand at making an artwork showing how you see Western Australia today. Work with us to create a work on paper revealing your vision of our state!
