Warriors For The Environment - 55-59 Flood St - Leichhardt - NSW
Join us at Boomalli Aboriginal Artists Co-operative on Thursday 11th April from 6pm – 8pm for the opening night of “Warriors for the Environment”. This exhibition is about how we as Aboriginal Artists contribute to caring for country and how we interpret our environment.

The reality is that climate change is here, and it is evident with weather events such as: drought, floods, rising sea levels and bush fires. This earth is slowly running out of its natural resources and we all need to be mindful and find ways to be sustainable.

As Aboriginal people, we have always had a special connection to the land. The land is one with us and it is important to look after the land. Our elders would teach and tell us stories of why it is important to protect our waterways and our country, and maintain our traditional and spiritual connection to the land through song, art, language and ceremony.

Exhibiting Artists: Euphemia Bostock, Arone Meeks, Jeffrey Samuels, Bronwyn Bancroft, Joe Hurst, James P Simon, Blak Douglas, Joanne Cassady, June Mills, Nadeena Dixon, Jai Walker, Jasmine Sarin, Graham Toomey, Peta-Joy Williams, Sharon Smith, Ella Noah Bancroft, Maddison Gibbs, Gordon Hookey, Jenny Fraser, Debra Beale, Kevin May, Hayley Pigram, Edward Cruse, Jessica Johnson, Danny Eastwood, Rubyrose Bancroft, Jasmine Coe, Camellia Boney, Darren Charlwood and Judy Jarrett.
