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.
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 recorded the life stories of 10 Elders from the Bundjalung nation in the Northern Rivers region of New South Wales. It was 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’.
Few artists are comfortable talking about their practice in business terms, feeling somehow it may make them seem less than a true artist. But business and career play a big part in all the decisions we make along the way of a creative life.
Artstate brings a stimulating program of regional, national and international speakers to Lismore in 2017 alongside a curated arts program that offers an unprecedented opportunity to see the best the regional NSW has to offer.
Following the recent flood event in the Northern Rivers a group of local artists, led by RealArtWorks Collective, are delivering a creative workshop program to assist people with their recovery process.
