The Penrith Regional Gallery will create an educational kit to accompany an exhibition, uncovering the story of an Aboriginal mission farm in western Sydney.

The gallery will develop the kit to increase awareness of Aboriginal people living on a local mission, with the help of a $7000 BlueScope Steel Gallery Focused Grant for Gallery Education.

The Marella Aboriginal Mission Farm operated until the 1980s.

The gallery’s exhibition, Marella: The Hidden Mission, hopes to uncover secrets of the significant site.

The Marella: The Hidden Mission education kit will accompany the exhibition and provide teachers with a resource to promote reconciliation.
