Film Through 1000 Images souvenir catalogue comes off the presses

Posted: March 17, 2017 in Uncategorized

The souvenir catalogue from last year’s Back To Bourke exhibition showcasing  the making of Lorina Barker’s film My Grandmother’s Country  came back from the UNE printery today. Especially designed by Lorina and photographer/curatorial assistant Beth O’Loughlan as a gift to the community and families that participated in the making of the film. In a way the project returns home when we gather in Brewarrina this coming week for the first community engagement for the Looking Through Windows exhibition to be presented at NERAM later in the year.

Over 60 people will meet to revisit the Old Brewarrina Mission and we’ll be there to gather and record the stories of those that lived through the forced removals and the experience of the Stolen Generations. Again, a multi-disciplinary approach will be taken using visual art, video, audio recording and photography to harness the stories of families affected by the government policies of the late 19th and 20th centuries that saw countless Aboriginal people removed from their homelands and eventually from the Missions as they closed through to the 1970’s.
