How have humans, animals and the environment connected in the past? How do they change each other to shape our world? 

Against the vista of urban Canberra children explore the landscape and historic cottage of Mugga Mugga, to consider relationships between the ancient grasslands and animals of south-eastern Australia, the First People who always cared for Country and shepherding families and animals who came to live here.

Through creative and inquiry-based experiences, students empathise with humans, nature and the power of our actions to shape our environment. Children imagine Mugga from human and natural perspectives through storytelling, performance, discussion and immersion in the site. Inspired by First Nations art children will use found, natural materials to make, showcase and discuss their own work.
