Binjil Dubais Northern Rivers Sea of Bellies
6 - 15 July 2018
Event Space

Binjil Dubais (meaning pregnant women in Bundjalung) Northern Rivers Sea of Bellies is a partnership project between Beyond Empathy, Northern NSW Local Health District Aboriginal maternity teams and Lismore City Council. 
 
Sea of Bellies began in Moree NSW 2004 as a collaboration between Beyond Empathy and the Aboriginal Maternal Infant Health Services. The project links young pregnant women with prenatal health awareness and support, through the art of belly casting. Artist Jo Davidson trains local midwives in belly casting and local Elder women and other artists are invited to paint the belly casts. It is a process in which creating art allows for sharing stories and cultural knowledge between young mums and Elders while facilitating access to health and social services workers. Binjil Dubais has held Thursday workshops in the old Lismore Regional Gallery for a year, employing a young local artist Caitlin Wilmot as plaster trainee.
 
Sea of Bellies exhibition will be on display at the Lismore Regional Gallery from 6-15 July as part of NAIDOC Week with the theme: Because of her, we can!
 
Exhibition will open at 10.30am Friday 6 July in the Event Space with a morning tea and kids activities in The Quad.
Please RSVP to Catherine Rosenbaum by 29 June (ph.1300 87 83 87 or e.catherine.rosenbaum@lismore.nsw.gov.au)
