We have hit our initial target, however we are still gratefully accepting your donations.
This October, Bábbarra Women’s Centre’s textiles will be exhibited at the Australian Embassy in France.
Our campaign is supporting the various costs of producing this exhibition, and of getting five artists and two managers/curators over to France to be part of the exhibition opening and to share our story with the world.
The exhibition is titled ‘Jarracharra’ meaning dry season winds in Burarra, one of our languages from Maningrida. Jarracharra has been co-curated by Jessica Phillips, a Burarra woman from Blyth river country and Ingrid Johanson, Manager of Bábbarra Women’s Centre.
Our exhibition features textile works from artists from 12 Indigenous language groups. The chance for us to travel to ‘Jarracharra’ will ensure that our artists are key in representing their own works.
We already have support from Australia Council for the Arts (accommodation and some tickets), and the Australian Embassy (supporting the gallery space) and Arts NT.
We are crowdfunding for the other fundamental costs to make this project is possible.
Thank you for being part of our journey.
