ABOUT ART ON BUNDJALUNG

Art On Bundjalung is an Indigenous-led artisan market and cultural program held on Country across the Northern Rivers region. Art on Bundjalung brings community together to connect and gather, foster cultural exchange, and celebrate Indigenous creatives that call Bundjalung Country home. Art on Bundjalung holds community and culture at its centre, creating economic opportunities for creatives, and spaces for connection and celebration. Through the sharing of culture across many forms – art, performance, traditional practices, food and ceremony – Art on Bundjalung builds collective pride in our local communities.

Art on Bundjalung began in 2017 as a way to provide opportunities for Indigenous people across Northern NSW to explore better health and wellbeing through connection with cultural arts. The project brought Indigenous people together to connect socially, and build the capacity of emerging Indigenous artists through various art forms. Exploring and communicating personal and social values, and giving voice to storylines through art and conversation was a focus of the project. Throughout all stages, art and its connection to culture and country was intrinsically linked, enhancing the health and wellbeing of Indigenous people.  

Arts Northern Rivers partnered with North Coast Primary Health Network and Lismore Regional Gallery, supported by a steering committee, to deliver the project through to June 2019 culminating in the delivery of the first Bundjalung Art Market at The Quad, in Lismore.  

Following on from the success of the inaugural Art On Bundjalung Market, Arts Northern Rivers is proud to be working with Bundjalung artists, local councils and community partners to continue delivering the event across the region. In 2021 the Market returned to the Lismore Quad, in October 2022 the Market ventured to Kyogle, and in 2024 Art on Bundjalung will be held in Evans Head.”
