JINGI WALLA /// WELCOME
Following on from the success of the inaugural Art On Bundjalung Market held in Lismore 2019, Arts Northern Rivers worked with Bundjalung artists, local councils and community partners to deliver the second market event in December 2021.
The overwhelming response from the community and support for the market has established the Art On Bundjalung Market as a key cultural event in the Northern Rivers with more markets planned for 2022.
The 2021 Art On Bundjalung Market celebrated the creative cultural heritage of the Bundjalung region. The event featured handmade arts and crafts by established and emerging artists and collectives, employing traditional and contemporary materials including weaving, ceramics, carving, photography, painting and textiles.
Held in Lismore’s creative outdoor space, The Quad, the day began with a celebration Welcome to Country and presented local music, dance and cultural family activities.
Art On Bundjalung Market was an opportunity to see, experience and purchase incredible work being produced by artists of the Bundjalung region NSW and offered a unique chance to meet the makers, hear their stories and share their culture.
The 2021 Art On Bundjalung Market was an initiative of Arts Northern Rivers in partnership with various community stakeholders, including; Rekindling the Spirit, Ngunyah Jarjums, Koori Mail, MEH Events with support from Lismore City Council Business Activation Grant and The Quad.
