Lismore Regional Gallery invites you to be part of an exciting Showcase at the new Lismore Regional Gallery.
This is an opportunity for emerging and established Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander artists who have a strong connection with Bundjalung Country to have their work seen and sold from 8 December 2017 to 11 February 2018.
Following the recent flood event in the Northern Rivers a group of local artists, led by the RealArtWorks Collective, are delivering a creative workshop program to assist people with their recovery process. Located at 29 Carrington Lane, Lismore, ARCH participants are encouraged to use creative expression as a way to reconnect with the community and make sense of recent events, providing a space for participants to share stories and feelings and express their responses through a creative process.
The Northern Rivers is home to the highest concentration of arts and creative industries practitioners outside of metropolitan centers.
Northern Rivers Creative is a directory showcasing professional practitioners of the Northern Rivers and committed to making connections for local, national and international markets for local creatives.
The project will record the life stories of 10 Elders from the Bundjalung nation / Northern Rivers region of New South Wales. It has been inspired by the energy and passion of Dale Roberts – a local Aboriginal woman who has worked along side our region’s most respected and loved Elders.
Dale said, ‘Ever since I can remember people were asking me, for years, about how to get in touch with Elders and speak to our Aboriginal mob’.
