Belconnen Community Gallery seeks partnerships with Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander artists to participate in the annual RESPECT Series.
About the RESPECT series
Belconnen Community Service (BCS) is dedicated to a connected, active, and strong community with an embedded acknowledgement of and respect for Australia’s first peoples. As part of our Reconciliation Action Plan we have developed the RESPECT series showcasing and celebrating work by Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander artists and groups. The RESPECT series runs from Reconciliation Week through to NAIDOC Week featuring three different exhibitions during this time.
Calling for Artists’ Expressions of Interest
Over the years we have developed strong relationships with a number of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander artists and groups, but we are always looking for new people to collaborate with. We are seeking individuals or groups young and old and everything in between! If you are an Aboriginal or Torres Strait Islander artist yourself, or you know someone who is, or know of a group that may be interested in exhibiting as part of this series, we’d love to hear from you. Please Contact Belconnen Community Gallery program coordinator Ben Drysdale on 6264 0252 or via email here for an application form.
Reconciliation Week Exhibition: Monday 20 May – Friday 7 June. Each year this exhibition features both Aboriginal and non-Aboriginal artists and includes a collaboration piece created in the gallery during the first week of the exhibition.
RESPECT exhibition 2: Monday 17 June – Friday 28 June. Open for any Aboriginal and/or Torres Strait Islander individual or group to exhibit.
NAIDOC Week exhibition: Monday 1 July – Friday 19 July. Open for any Aboriginal and/or Torres Strait Islander individual or group to exhibit.
If you are interested in being part of our celebration and exhibiting in this series please contact Belconnen Community Gallery program officer Ben Drysdale on 6264 0252 or via email here.
