One-of-a-kind exhibition on our doorstep

FOR the first time ever, nine NSW Aboriginal-owned cultural facilities have banded together to present an exhibition and it is available right on our doorsteps.

The exhibition, titled 'From our place: an exhibition from NSW Aboriginal Cultural Centres', opened at the Yarrawarra Aboriginal Cultural Centre earlier this month as part of a state-wide tour.

It's the culmination of not just months of work for curator, Gymbaynggir artist Alison Williams, but also several years of development for ACHAA, the NSW Aboriginal Culture, and Heritage & Arts Association.

"Unlike other states, there is no real uniformity or genre of Aboriginal community owned cultural facilities in NSW,” Ms Williams said.

"Each has been a response to its community's desire and will to have its own keeping and meeting place where art and culture can be collected, maintained and renewed through practice and application.

"Broadly these are the objectives of all the ACHAA member organisations represented in this exhibition, to ensure NSW Aboriginal culture remains not just viable but actually thrives through visibility and engagement.”

The exhibition is at the Yarrawarra Aboriginal Cultural Centre on Red Rock Rd, Corindi Beach, until November 4.
