Open 11am-5pm Friday – Sunday, 31 August – 8 SeptemberArticulate is calling-out to artists to donate artwork for a fundraiser for Yaama Ngunnna Baaka Corroboree Festival 2019 at Walgatt, Brewinna, Bourke, Wilcannia and Menindee on Saturday 28 September to Wednesday 3 October 2019. Funds raised will be used to support dancers and performers coming to the river from around the country to show the precarious state of the river system and our collective need to advocate for its survival.

So far, artwork for sale is donated by Uncle Bruce Shillingsworth, a Muruwari and Budjiti man, a talented artist and water for the rivers activist, as well as by his family. We are calling for as many artists as possible to also donate their artwork for this very good cause.

If so, please promise to donate your artwork by sending details (for you and the work) to Yaama Ngunna Baaka Corroboree Festival coordinator on yaamangunnabaaka@gmail.com, and then delivering it to ArticulateUpstairson dates to be announced on https://articulateupstairs.blogspot.com.
