Surviving and Thriving

Djaa Djuwima meaning ‘to show, share Country’ in Dja Dja Wurrung language is a dedicated and permanent First Nations Gallery at the Bendigo Visitor Centre on Pall Mall. For First Nations artists, this is a safe place for creative and cultural expression, to explore identity, heritage and connection. Djaa Djuwima provides a prominent platform to see Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander cultures, customs and stories not seen anywhere else, with each creative bringing their own unique style using traditional and contemporary methods. Our current exhibition, Surviving and Thriving features paintings, weaving, creative making, woodwork and digital works by 25 First Nations artists between the ages of 14 to 70.
