Event ends
We are honored to have Nationwide Curating artist, Djuwakan Jeremy Marika, cleanse and bless the new gallery space at 62 Atchison Street, St Leonards during our gallery launch event—In consultation with local Cammeraygal Indigenous Elders & peoples.
Further to consulting with Jeremy, we have sought blessings from a variety of local and significant cultural leaders and invited attendance of first peoples from Darug as well as Northern Beaches peoples, some of whom we are meeting for the first time.
If you are a local indigenous person, this is an open event and we look forward to making your acquaintance. You are most welcome.
This beautiful image is by photographer Amanda Gunston who also happens to be Jeremy's wife. We are hoping to have some limited edition prints available at this event for two images of Jeremy performing.
