This year the region’s favourite Art on Bundjalung Market is coming to Kyogle on Saturday 22 October. The event will take over Stratheden St from 9am–3pm, celebrating the creative cultural heritage of the Bundjalung region. It features handmade arts and crafts by established and emerging artists and collectives who are working with traditional and contemporary techniques and materials including weaving, ceramics, carving, photography, painting and textiles.

Art On Bundjalung Market is an opportunity to see, experience, and purchase incredible work being produced by Bundjalung artists, and it offers a unique chance to meet the makers, hear their stories and share their culture. 

The event opens with a Welcome to Country and presents local music, dance, and cultural family activities. 

The cultural program includes local Elders connecting with the community through the sharing and celebration of culture.

Art on Bundjalung Market is presented by Arts Northern Rivers, the peak arts organisation for the region working to deliver services and projects that foster artistic innovation and excellence to ensure access and engagement with arts and cultural activity. Arts Northern Rivers Executive Director, Jane Fuller, says the overwhelming success of the Art on Bundjalung Market events in Lismore have proved the importance of continuing to deliver this event to our community.

This is a joyous day of immersing ourselves as a collective community in the incredible cultural offerings of Bundjalung creatives and artisans.
