CIAF Pride in Authority - Bentinck Island visit

Our Culture

Added by Cairns Indigenous Art Fair

Description Pride in Authority was major highlight of CIAF’s program of satellite exhibitions in 2018. Stemming from a collaboration between CIAF and three remote Aboriginal communities: Aurukun, Pormpuraaw and Bentinck and Mornington Islands.

To maintain language and culture for the next generation, a series of artistic workshops and cultural sharing activities were facilitated by Elders. The project inspired young people and emerging artists to create work that is appropriate, reflective and celebratory.

Pride in Authority is based on the diverse and complex systems of connection to country through paintings, sculpture, language and storytelling.
