Each year JCU Library and Information Services hosts an exhibition by an Aboriginal or Torres Strait Islander artist to celebrate the official naming of the Eddie Koiki Mabo Library and the release of the University’s Reconciliation Statement on 21 May 2008.

This year the artist is Teho Ropeyarn and his exhibition is titled Madang Ikamba (strength of a crocodile).

The exhibition will run from Thursday May 14th to Friday June 12th 2015 and is open for the public to view during Library opening hours.

The exhibition also coincides with National Reconciliation Week which runs from May 27th to June 3rd (which is Mabo Day). Other JCU events to mark Reconciliation week will occur during this period to enact aspects of JCU's Reconciliation Action Plan.
