Pilbara Strike Project: The Strelley Mob

The Strelley Mob are the descendants of the Pilbara pastoral workers who went on strike in 1946. They went on to run their own mines and stations, and their stories were written and illustrated by elders for their children when they opened their own school. Jewels of Pilbara history, these drawings – including some of the first-known art by Nyapuru William (Billy) Gardiner – are here newly animated and projected alongside paintings and artefacts that bring the history of the Strelley Mob to life.
