Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Queensland
Located on Level 1 of SLQ, kuril dhagun is a showcase of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander cultures and a gathering place for all peoples. It is an initiative of SLQ designed specifically to inspire audience participation, and to promote and celebrate Queensland's Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples, cultures, histories and stories. Since it was established in 2006, kuril dhagun has been a significant cultural and learning space and is used as a meeting place by many community groups and organisations. It facilitates community connection, advocacy and the creating, sharing and preserving of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander knowledge, ideas and experiences.
Explore kuril dhagun at your own pace with a self-directed visit. Activities, spaces and areas of interest include exhibitions, Lilla Watson artwork, Reading Nook, Media space, Talking Circle and more. Visit the kuril dhagun page for further details.
A staff member is available within the kuril dhagun space weekdays from 10am till 4pm to assist with navigating State Library's Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander collections and services. If individual students or small groups of students want to learn how to use the library or have a research question, staff will be happy to help.
