Rivers to Ridges and the Stories in Between Exhibition Opening

Rivers to Ridges and the stories in between documents the stories of 20 Elders, 4 artists and the Aboriginal history of our region in multimedia format.

Feature artists have used the stories to inspire new works in a variety of mediums including virtual reality, song and sculpture in order to share the stories with the broader Aboriginal and non-Aboriginal community.

This project is part of the Arts North West Aboriginal Cultural Support Program. This program supports and delivers projects that embed the knowledge and stories of our area, enabling our communities to reconnect and rediscover the unique cultural identity of the New England North West.

Artists include:
Loren Ryan (Tamworth)
Ronella (Dolly) Jerome (Tenterfield)
Jade Porter (Moree)
Anthony (Jack) Conlon (Gunnedah)
Videographers Brendan Blacklock (Blacklock Media) & Tim Leha (The Kainga Project).

The exhibition will be opened by Gomeroi man Peter White with a ceremony by Len Waters
