Exhibition: Indigenous Art Masterclass Showcase

Hume City Council and the Broadmeadows Indigenous Education Centre are hosting an Indigenous Art Masterclass Showcase exhibition, as part of Victorian Reconciliation Week.

The unique exhibition features works created by the local community through a series of art masterclasses led by Indigenous artist Karen Lovett and community mosaic specialist, Libby McKinnon.

The masterclass sessions were initiated as part of Hume City Council’s Reconciliation Action Plan 2013-2017, targeted at increasing awareness, understanding and connection amongst the local and Indigenous community.

Participants were asked to create a number of large mosaic panels, featuring Lovett's strong graphic imagery.

They felt privileged to share in both artists' personal stories and hear first-hand accounts of the work involved in realising large-scale public art commissions.

Hume Mayor, Councillor Drew Jessop, said the ‘Indigenous Art Masterclass Showcase’ exhibition was an important step towards the reconciliation journey.

“We are very proud to celebrate our local Indigenous talent and their collection of works, which tell empowering stories of courage and reconciliation,” Cr Jessop said.

“We are committed to working with our community to foster a higher level of knowledge and pride in Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander histories, cultures and contributions.

“We also want to acknowledge our respect for the generations of people who were removed from their families between 1910 and 1970.”

This exhibition will run until Friday, 9 June 2017 at the Hume Global Learning Centre - Broadmeadows.
