Orion Expedition Cruise - 'Art of Arnhem Land'

6 May - 11 May 2010

Bula'bula Arts is proud to announce that we are going on tour... via the coastline of Arnhem Land!  We have been invited by the luxury cruise ship the Orion to come aboard the 'Art of Arnhem Land' expedition, which will visit Aboriginal Art Centres through the top end of Australia in May.  

Senior artists Peter Gambung and Bobby Bununggurr, accompanied by Louise O'Neil (manager) and Sara Higgs (curator) will board the vessel at Yirrkala, and visit communities such as Galiwin'ku, Maningrida and the Tiwi Islands before disembarking in Darwin.  As well as having the opportunity to talk about local art and culture, we will also be showing key examples of artwork produced from Bula'bula Arts.

This is not the first time Bobby has been invited to work on a cruise liner.  He fondly remembers a time when he and David Gulpilil performed at sea several years ago.  We are all looking forward to seeing the country from a different perspective and meeting the other passengers.
