18 indigenous artists come together for this special exhibition alongside Jandamarra Cadd, Paul Calcott and Lyndon Davis. 'Hear my Voice' showcases our First Nation artists residing here on Gubbi Gubbi, Kabi Kabi Country.
Event ambassador Jandamarra Cadd says 'Hear my Voice' is an opportunity to connect these artists to a broader audience.
"It's also about presenting that visual voice ... whether it be derived from their traditional stories individual based pieces or something they feel passionate about," he said.
