On Wednesday 7 December, Rhoda Roberts AO will chair one of the most incendiary, dynamic discussions about the importance of art, culture, and education ever to come to the Northern Rivers.
Held at the brand new Park Lane Theatre in Lennox Community Centre, featuring four brilliant minds and cultural icons: Hip Hop artist, historian & activist Akala (UK), Bundjalung artist, curator & activist Djon Mundine OAM, and rising Indigenous literary star Ellen van Neerven, along with multi-talented and highly revered Roberts, this is a rare and exciting panel, and a conversation not to missed.

Raising money for Boomerang Festival, the panel will discuss the significance of culture and art as educational tools, and how education can be better delivered through art and culture. From African and Aboriginal perspectives, as well as historical and modern examples, the panel will surely cover the more controversial elements of these three topics, and share a wealth of collective knowledge you would otherwise never have the opportunity to receive.

Don't miss this exceptional calibre of minds sharing their knowledge and opinions on how we can do things better as community, for the sake of future generations. The event is open to all ages, however, please be advised there will be adult themes and potentially strong language used throughout the session. Parental supervision is advised for audience members under the age of 16.
‘Art, Culture & Education’ commences at 6pm, and will be followed by a Q&A session. Purchase tickets via ww.communityspaces.com.au.

About the Boomerang Presents Series:
Boomerang Festival, Bundjalung country's very own world-class Indigenous arts & culture festival, is launching a series of satellite events to raise awareness and funds for its long-term future. Boomerang Festival launched successfully in 2013 only to be hit with cuts to funding for both arts and Indigenous programming for the east coast of Australia, putting it on indefinite hiatus.

Whilst Boomerang has a temporary home at Bluesfest, it needs upwards of $800,000 to become a stand-alone festival once again, and a minimum of $200,000 each time it presents at Bluesfest.
The ultimate goal for Festival Directors Rhoda Roberts AO and Peter Noble OAM (Bluesfest) is to make Boomerang Festival the foremost Indigenous arts and culture festival in the world. The ambition is huge, but Peter, Rhoda and their team believe the time is right and Australia is ready to step out on the world stage and become known as the destination for authentic and quality Indigenous cultural exchanges.

The Northern Rivers and greater community agree, and in a mammoth exercise, a large and diverse group of business and community leaders are uniting with Boomerang and each other, to achieve this goal, together as a community. The series of fundraising events will be held all over Bundjalung country between September 2016 - April 2017.
