Re: [BKARTS] image as text as image



the foibles of global contexts ... we take so much for granted in our
little locales ... it's perhaps worth letting you know that euraba is an
arts (papermaking) enterprise run by aboriginal women - they are based
in/around the new south wales and queensland border. it's a fanastic and
successful exercise in self-determination and the papermaking provides the
community with a business focus that brings everyone together to meet other
cultural imperatives (ie this is not a reclamation of an traditional
indigenous craft) ... it's quite different, in many ways, to the usual
practices of indigenous peoples having to 'paint to eat' (for example)
which is what can happen in a fairly unprincipled art/tourism market ... i
encourage you to find out more about this as the paper is for sale, made
from indigenous plants and the like ... very beautiful and tactile ...
there's another similar venture in queensland, in the western mining town
of mt isa.

there's no website that i could find but lots of web references if you want
to google euraba - here's a news story to begin with ...

oh - noosa is on the coast, about two hours north of brisbane, the capital
of queensland, the northern state on the eastern coast ... this artists
books show has been running for about eight years as an annual event ...
google noosa regional gallery for more info ... contact info for the
gallery was in the email sent but here it is again -

contact Maryke Stagg on +61 7 5449 5340 or email maryke.stagg@xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx

your tour ends here ... all best, linda


ps does capitalising in email still mean shouting?
