A colorful selection of dilly bags are currently on display at the Bathurst Regional Art Gallery [BRAG] home as part of the Home 2021 program that runs through the place each year. Now in its third year, the Home program is a series of workshops, virtual field trips, and school-integrated programs that explore contemporary Indigenous art, language, and culture.
