Exhibition to mark NAIDOC Week

4 July, 2024

Gunnedah Shire is joining the celebrations of NAIDOC Week with the opening of the popular NAIDOC Week Art Exhibition 2024 on Friday, 5 July.

This exhibition is an eclectic collection of community works reflecting on the week that celebrates and recognises the history, culture, and achievements of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples.

The theme for this year is Keep the Fire Burning! Blak, Loud & Proud.

Cultural Precinct Team Leader Danny Hankinson said the exhibition was vibrant and varied.

“The NAIDOC Week Art Exhibition 2024 reflects on the rich cultures of our First Nations people, with artworks including everything from bark paintings to weaving and sculpture,” Mr Hankinson said.

“Students and schools from the region have created some beautiful works alongside more seasoned artists, and our community should be proud of this celebratory exhibition.”

The exhibition will open at 1pm on Friday, 5 July at the Gunnedah Bicentennial Creative Arts Gallery, and will remain open until Thursday, 8 August 2024.
