Artist sizzling to go to Mexico
SHE’S not singing for her supper but indigenous Coffs Harbour artist Danielle Burford has been selling food for art.
A Wiradjuri woman, based in Coffs Harbour for the past nine years, Ms Burford ran a sausage sizzle with her sponsor Westpac.
Next weekend, she flies to Mexico to represent Australia at the ‘Festival Internacional de Arte y Cultura por la Pax’.
“I’m really proud to go over there and represent Australia,” she said.
“Because I was invited as a guest of honour and it’s such a huge thing, I wanted to give something back to the (Mexican) community.”
She plans to auction a collaborative artwork she will oversee while in Mexico to benefit a La Paz orphanage. Her fundraising will support this project.
