11/14 | Indigenous Art Film Screening, Exhibit & Discussion: Artists of the First Sunrise (FREE)


Documentary and art exhibit give voice to Indigenous Australians celebrating 40,000-year old traditions and cultural ceremonies.

The 13-minute short is evocative of what the completed documentary will be…highlighting the art, music, dance and performance that the First Nations People create and share to heal through art, teach future generations about traditions and teach others about their plight. To complement the screening, we’ll engage in a panel discussion and present artwork by professor Wayne Quilliam, one of Australia’s pre-eminent Indigenous photographic artists.
