yapang story

The word yapang (pronounced yar pung) means journey/pathway in Awabakal and is the name given to a new dedicated Aboriginal program within the Museum of Art and Culture Lake Macquarie, yapang (MAC). The initiative is a natural progression of the 19-year relationship between the art museum and Aboriginal Reference Group.

Through yapang, you will always be able to view contemporary Aboriginal art and participate in related programming throughout the year.
