Bunnal - a place of heart, has been a cultural journey for local indigenous and non indigenous young people. They have been guided by local artists and elders connecting them with our rich local indigenous culture and sacred sites while producing wonderful creative works.
Over 25 young people from different cultures and ages engaged in workshops that took them on a journey exploring our rich and vibrant Aboriginal culture. Through site-specific creative developments the young artists heard stories, learnt about our environment, sacred sites and rituals under the cultural mentorship of Kevin ‘Gavi’ Duncan while working with four local artists; Cheryl McCoy, Garry Purchase, Lindsay Cameron and Sharon Aldrick.
This amazing collection of works including an 8 minute film of stunning cinematography, is on display at Gosford Hospital until December 2019 and then will be touring other galleries of the Central Coast region including The Art House, Wyong.
It’s been a journey for the young people and they have relished in the opportunity and have grown so much from the experience.
