Keep our hands moving!
ANTaR ACT has a collection of ‘hands’ in six colours, which are suitable to prompt discussion of reconciliation and recognition. If you would like to borrow our hands for an event or learning opportunity, email us at email@example.com. For an example of how the hands have been used previously, please refer to the 2014 ANTaR ACT newsletter (under ‘Publications’) which features an article about the successful ‘Sea of Hands’ installation in February 2014 to celebrate the sixth anniversary of the National Apology and the 50th anniversary of AIATSIS.
