Cockburn Gazette - - LIFESTYLE -

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.
