MARKET

JINGI WALLA /// WELCOME

The inaugural Art On Bundjalung Market in 2019 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.

ABOUT THE PROJECT

Art on Bundjulung Country began in 2017 as a way to provide opportunities for Aboriginal people across Northern NSW to explore better health and wellbeing through connection with cultural arts.

 

The project brought Aboriginal people together to connect socially, foster participation and cultural exchange, and build the capacity of emerging Aboriginal artists through various art forms. Exploring and communicating personal and social values and giving voice to storylines and hidden issues through art and conversation was a focus of the project. Throughout all stages, art and its connection to culture and country was intrinsically linked, enhancing the health and wellbeing of Aboriginal people. 

Arts Northern Rivers has again partnered with North Coast Primary Health Network and Lismore Regional Gallery, supported by a steering committee, to deliver the project through to June 2019 culminating in a Bundjalung Art Market at The Quad, in Lismore.
