The Ngemba Wailwan Artists Initiative is an art group that is led and mentored by Warren Regional Indigenous Cultural Development Officer (RICDO) Mary Kennedy. The group is a collective of aboriginal artists who meet weekly in Warren to work on their artworks that are inspired by the traditional style of their ancestors the Ngemba Wailwan tribe.
The group has held exhibitions in local and regional galleries as well as NSW Parliament House Gallery in early 2012.
The artists work within the community to further the knowledge about the Ngemba Wailwan people and develop Indigenous creativity through a variety of mediums.
The artists, as part of the group, draw inspiration from the stories told by their Elders as well as drawing inspiration from the landscape around them and their own personal experiences.
The art group was initiated as part of the Outback Arts Regional Indigenous Cultural Development Officer (RICDO) Program which runs in the shires of Warren, Walgett, Cobar, Coonamble and Bourke.
The program aims to support the development of Indigenous arts and culture through a number of initiatives. The main of which is the employment of a ‘Regional Indigenous Cultural Development Officer’ (RICDO) in each of the Outback Arts local government areas.
Work continues to develop and for further information regarding the group you can contact the Warren RICDO Mary Kennedy on (04) 17 040 019 or visit the Outback Arts website on www.outbackarts.com.au
