Pathways Lab

PATHWAYS LAB is a professional development pilot program that offers support to five First Nations creative practitioners living on Bundjalung country. The program aims to develop the leadership skills of emerging practitioners, grow their creative capacity, and connect them with pathways into areas of the arts they may not have encountered or considered.

The first intensive took place in November 2022, facilitated by lead artist, Bundjalung and Yaegl man Mitch King, with Minjungbal-Yugambeh, Wiradjuri and Ni-Vanuatu guest artist, Thomas E.S Kelly of Karul Projects. Participants include Coedie McCarthy, Jannali Doncaster, Tahnee Arnold, Rory Close, and Ngarra Williams.

We are looking forward to connecting again in further intensive workshops to be held this year.
