Calling All Indigenous Artists - Expression of Interest Warangesda Marramarra Arts Project


Western Riverina Arts and the Griffith Regional Art Gallery invite Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander artists to express interest in taking part in a 2017 art project engaging with the significant site of the old Warangesda Mission, at Darlington Point. 

The outcome of this project will be an exhibition at the Griffith Regional Art Gallery for NAIDOC week from June 2017 and on-site installations. The exhibition may also tour to other locations. The project will be of particular interest to Aboriginal artists living in the Western Riverina area, and those with family connections to the Mission.

The main activities for the project will be group weekend workshops in different media conducted in early 2017, both on and off the Warangesda site. Times and dates to be advised. Participants will work as a group to create new work, guided by invited leading Aboriginal artists. 

Aboriginal artists who work or are prepared to work in a variety of mediums are being sought to participate.

Artists should express interest by sending their contact details, as well as a brief outline of their artistic background (by early January 2017) to: rado@westrivarts.com.au
