Description

Join us for the official opening of A Territory Story, an exhibition that explores the people, places and events that have shaped the Northern Territory. 

Using the Library collection, the exhibition delves into NT history through the lenses of ten themes including Larrakia Country, Courage, Tracks and Mapping, All Aboard, Territory Made, Home, Check it out!, Territorians, Darwin and Territory Classics.

This event is also to thank the scores of people who have contributed their time and energy to this exhibition - from fact checkers and proof readers through to people who were part of the initial community consultations. 

Official proceedings will commence at 5:45pm. 

Cash bar available and light refreshments provided.
