Broadening Community Reach

Broadening Community Reach is a project to develop, produce, present and exhibit Aboriginal art and culture from the Western Region (Revised Program) funded by the Ministry for the Arts.

The Broadening Community Reach project incorporates the delivery of programs that will develop, produce, exhibit and encourage participation in traditional and contemporary Indigenous artistic expression. The Project will deliver and indigenous art outcome that will be accessible to the whole of remote and regional communities in the West Darling region, including Broken Hill, Tibooburra, Menindee, White Cliffs, Wilcannia, Ivanhoe and Wentworth.

In partnership with the Broken Hill Regional Art Gallery, Aboriginal Artists were assisted and encouraged to produce works for the 2016 Far West Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Open Art Prize to be held in January 2016. Selected works from the Art Prize will then be toured throughout 2016 By West Darling Arts to the remote and regional communities of: Tibooburra, Menindee, White Cliffs, Wilcannia, Ivanhoe and Wentworth with the possibility of extending to other regions. This project is the first of its kind in the West Darling Region.

Aboriginal Artists from the towns of Broken Hill, Tibooburra, Menindee, White Cliffs, Wilcannia, Ivanhoe and Wentworth. The Artists in these communities are encouraged to become engaged in this and future projects.
