Narrun Yana will open their latest exhibition at Wominjeka Festival this Sunday 27 May at the Gabriel Gallery in the Footscray Community Arts Centre at 2pm.
VACCA’s art collective Narrun Yana create artwork together in a culturally nurturing environment, mentored by artist Megan Cope and and Kalinya Communications Director Jirra Harvey.
The collective is made up of young Aboriginal people Rubii Red, Nakia Cadd, Gina McRae and Tara-Rose.
Now in its eighth year, the 2018 Wominjeka Festival will run from Friday 25 to Sunday 27 May. Deeply rooted in its community origins, this year’s event will be ‘unplugged’, affirming the intimate connection between Aboriginal Peoples and this land.
Wominjeka’s tradition is steeped in the values of home, heart, creativity, connection and culture. This year’s Festival will revisit the lines walked between the youth and Elders, making room for us to breathe and grow together.
The Narrun Yana exhibition is a free event! We encourage everyone to come down and support Rubii, Nakia, Gina and Tara, and enjoy all the art they’ve been working on in the past few months.
