Federal Member for Page Kevin Hogan today announced a $100,000 Federal Government grant to deliver the Art on Bundjalung Market event in 2021.
“This event will celebrate the creative and cultural heritage of our Bundjalung region,” Mr Hogan said.
“It will include an Aboriginal arts and craft market and a headline Aboriginal music act.”
“It is all about attracting more visitors to our community. This means more customers for our local businesses.”
Kyogle Council Mayor Danielle Mulholland said this funding is great news for the community.
“Art On Bundjalung Market will be an opportunity for audiences to see, experience and purchase incredible work being produced by artists of the Bundjalung region NSW,” Cr Mulholland said.
“It will feature both established and emerging Indigenous artists producing handmade arts and crafts and employing traditional and contemporary materials including weaving, ceramics, carving, photography, painting and textiles.”
This funding is being provided through the Regional Tourism Bushfire Recovery Grants.
