Held at The Quad in Lismore on Saturday the 1st of June between 10am and 4pm, Art on Bundjalung Market celebrated the creative and cultural heritage of the Bundjalung region.
Arts Northern Rivers is calling out to all Ceramic Masters who formed the vanguard in the Northern Rivers during the 70’s – 90’s to join a region wide celebration of their legacy. Celebrating Ceramics hopes to open the kiln to reveal the rich history of Ceramics within our region.
In 2019 the Art on Bundjulung Country project continues to provide opportunities for Aboriginal people across the Northern NSW to explore better health and wellbeing through connection with cultural arts.
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’.
