Maliga Arts & Culture Showcase 2015

EarthlyInk also embodies an art consultancy practice, and as part of this tier I recently acquired a contract with Wyong Shire Council, to assist with the coordination and curation of Maliga, an Indigenous arts and culture showcase of multidisciplinary artworks created by the shires young people from years K-12. 

Maliga, (‘shine’ in Darkinjung) is an opportunity for students to visually narrate their cultural stories from their own perspective through a diverse range of visual formats. This year 37 artworks were submitted, utilsing both traditional and contemporary processes. 

Below are images of the official invite and during installation with elder, Aunty Jenni
