The Bundjalung Tribal Society’s (BTS) Ignite Art Through Culture and Country program has successfully completed its first series of group art sessions.  

The program culminated with a celebratory event held at Namabunda Farm in Alstonville on Tuesday 30 April 2024. This launch event celebrated and showcased the artwork produced by people who had been part of the program. 

The Ignite Art Through Culture and Country program helps participants express their thoughts and feelings through art and culture.  

Using a holistic approach, the seven-week series encouraged reflection, healing and connection with the group, their family and community. Local artists and Elders led each session, and the program provided a valuable opportunity for different artistic mediums – such as clay, painting and photography – to be used as method for expression.  

The first round of this program was supported as part of the AHO’s Client Experience Initiative (CEI), where pilot projects are delivered to support the wellbeing and social outcomes of Aboriginal people.  

BTS aims to continue the program to build engagement and capacity for the community in the future.
