More about Belconnen Community Gallery’s ‘RESPECT’series

Each year, Belconnen Community Gallery runs a series of exhibitions between Reconciliation Week in May and NAIDOC Week in July, to celebrate and pay respect to the cultures of Australia’s First Peoples . Our annual Reconciliation Week exhibition invites Aboriginal and non-Aboriginal Artists to collaborate on a display of their own artworks. The exhibitors also, create a community art project that involves participation by BCS participants and employees, and patrons of the Belconnen Community Centre. The finished collaborative work is then permanently displayed in one of Belconnen Community Service’s facilities. Our 2018 exhibition, Journeys, brings together four women born in this country. Two of them identify as indigenous and they are all artists at different points on their individual journeys.

“Reconciliation can start with finding something in common to connect with, then seeing differences as something that can enrich our lives as we learn from each other. As shared histories are recognised and built, relationships between people become stronger, no matter where they are from. We hope people are inspired to think about their own journeys and how journeys can connect people and bring new perspectives.”
