LITTLE BIT LONG WAY – INDIGENOUS ART EXHIBITION & FUNDRAISER

Paintings, carvings, barks, weavings, artefacts and ceramics by new and established Indigenous talents.

Profits from LITTLE BIT LONG WAY will be used to fund the travel costs of visiting students and Elders from two Yolngu homelands of Dhalinybuy and Garrthalala in Miwatj (North-East Arnhem Land) and two Alyawarre communities, Ampilatwatja and Irrultja (Central Australia). Part of a two-way learning exchange with Woodleigh School.

Presented by McCulloch & McCulloch the exhibition comprises more than 80 works from 25 leading Aboriginal-owned art centres of the Central, Western and Eastern Deserts, Utopia, the Kimberley, Arnhem Land and the Pilbara. Featuring works of Baluk Arts: Indigenous artists of Frankston and the Mornington Peninsula.

With this diversity and quality of works LITTLE BIT LONG WAY adds an important dimension to Woodleigh School’s Indigenous program. With your generous patronage and support, this program will continue to make a significant difference to the lives of Indigenous children in remote communities.
