EXHIBIT MARKS BIG MILESTONE
WALKABOUT TURNS FIVE
AN exhibition in Fremantle will recognise five years since the Walkatjurra Walkabout began.
The four-week walkabout was held in 2010 to give people the chance to connect with country and culture and learn more about the threats of uranium mining in WA’s Yellowcake Country.
The group exhibition will take the name of Yellowcake Country and include a collection of sculpture, photography, stencils and paintings that have been donated to help raise funds for the WA Nuclear Free Alliance (WANFA).
WANFA chair and artist Kado Muir said it was great to reach the milestone and the Walkatjurra Walkabout would run again this month.
“We are happy to be celebrating five years of holding the line and keeping uranium in the ground,” he said.
The opening of Yellowcake Country on August 14 will include live music from Moombaki and a live auction.
The exhibition will be held at the Moores Building Contemporary Art Gallery from August 15 to 30.
