Over the past ten years the South West Indigenous Arts program has seen many art workshops take place, covering a wide range of mediums. The programme has featured artists as such Lance Chadd, Laurel Nannup, Jenni Doherty, Michael Wise, Julie Dowling and the late Shane Pickett . All have delivered valuable workshops for the community, showing emerging artists their different art styles and techniques to ensure new skills are passed on to Noongar artists in the South West.
A number of workshops have been delivered in other regional centres like Boddington, Busselton, Collie, Katanning and Roelands Mission. The Bunbury Regional Art Galleries have formed a great partnership with the Djidi Djidi Aboriginal Primary School which means all members of the community, even the Koolangars (children) can learn from our workshop program.
Information about future workshops will be available here as soon as it becomes available.
This workshop program is made possible through the support of BHP Billiton Worsley Alumina and the Office of the Arts.
