Background
Art on Bundjalung Country is an exciting exhibition and workshop project delivered in
partnership with the North Coast Primary Health Network, University Centre for Rural
Health, Bulgarr Ngaru Medical Aboriginal Corporation, Lismore Regional Gallery and Arts
Northern Rivers. This project is an opportunity for emerging Aboriginal and Torres Strait
Islander artists to learn new skills and for local artists to have their work seen and sold in an exhibition program at the new Lismore Regional Gallery in 2017.
 

Workshops
The workshop program will be developed to assist local Aboriginal and Torres Strait
Islander artists expand skills and to prepare work for possible inclusion in the exhibition
Art on Bundjalung Country, project partners have received funding to conduct up to five
workshops. These workshops can cover a variety of art forms and techniques – painting,
printmaking, weaving, sculpture, carving…to name a few.
The workshops can take place across the Northern Rivers (Tweed, Byron, Richmond Valley,
Kyogle, Lismore, Ballina or Clarence Valley).

for workshop materials and any local travel that may be needed.
