ACT-BELONG-COMMIT ELEVATE ARTS

DANJOO - INTERWOVEN 

Danjoo - Interwoven celebrates local Aboriginal culture, Country, language and visual arts practice in Western Australia. Midland Junction Arts Centre is situated on Whadjuk boodja and the eastern region that surrounds Midland is home to the largest Aboriginal population in metropolitan WA. Danjoo - Interwoven builds on MJAC’s commitment to working with Aboriginal artists and communities and provides the catalyst to cultivate a program that connects with, reflects and celebrates the local community.

An exhibition of eighteen local professional Aboriginal artists, and a community exhibition celebrating weaving and language are complimented by a residency by emerging Noongar artist Rohin Kickett, a performance by celebrated Noongar singer songwriter Gina Williams and guitarist Guy Ghouse , and a series of painting printmaking, photography, weaving and professional development workshops led by or for Aboriginal artists.
