Have a chat with Hope at Noosa Regional Gallery
This Wednesday Noosa Regional Gallery hosts visual artist and advocate for change, Hope O’Chin, as she invites questions and discussion about her current exhibition, ‘Belongingness’.
A Gubbi-Gubbi/Wakka-Wakka woman raised in the dormitory systems of Cherbourg, O’Chin, through her work, explores themes of Aboriginal identity and culture and its place in Australia’s story.
The Nambour-based artist is hoping to discuss, with curious locals, these themes and their significance, not only to her as the artist, but to the audience, and the wider community.
Noosa Regional Gallery Director Nina Shadforth says ’Belongingness’ is one of the more conceptually engaging exhibitions in the Gallery’s program this year.
“We’ve had great interest from our visitors for this month’s exhibitions, particularly as Hope O’Chin’s work offers a first-hand portrayal of the displacement of Indigenous Australians not often available to the broader public, ” Ms Shadforth said.
“Our monthly Coffee and Conversation program is designed to make the most of an exhibition like this, offering audiences a deeper appreciation for the artwork and the story behind it, by connecting them with the artist.”
‘Coffee and Conversation’ with Hope O’Chin runs from 11am until noon, Wednesday July 27 at Noosa Regional Gallery, riverside, Pelican Street, Tewantin
All are welcome. Gold coin donation.
