Who We Are Exhibition Launch

Kaiela Arts is inviting you to celebrate with us at the launch of our upcoming exhibition, Who we are, which features a collection of works from First Nations artists with deep connections to Yorta Yorta country. Curated by Lyn Thorpe and Belinda Briggs, Who we are will revitalise, strengthen and re-connect community, and set the foundation for a new era, bringing to life inspiring plans and exhibitions that nurture, sustain and celebrate our identities.

We see through the eyes of our Yenbena, Yakapna & Woka.
Our language connects us to a timeless place, where the past, present & future are all one. Who we are is born of our Woka; wala; yurratha; and everything in between that our Yenbena, yakapna & woonghi have yarned, sung, and danced around our wulumbarra since time immemorial!
It gives us our nanyak and nurtures our connections to enrich our spirit, our hearts and our minds. This is ‘Who We Are’…

Belinda Briggs, Yorta Yorta & Wemba Wemba, Kaiela Arts Deputy Chairperson
