Artlands 2018: Victoria

Shared Knowledge / Traded Resources / Exchanged Gifts / During Times of Ceremony and Gathering

Artlands Victoria will be held from 10-14 October 2018 in Bendigo and Castlemaine.

Celebrating twenty years in 2018, Artlands is the biennial event that shines a national spotlight on Australia’s regional arts.

Artlands Victoria will be an artistically driven and strategically distributed gathering presented by Regional Arts Victoria.

The Artlands Victoria tagline, Sharing Knowledge / Traded Resources / Exchanged Gifts at a time of ceremony and gathering, is taken from the Chairperson of the Dja Dja Wurrung Clans Aboriginal Corporation, Trent Nelson’s welcome in the Dja Dja Wurrung Country Plan 2014-2034.

“Dja Dja Wurrung People learned much from land and shared their knowledge, traded resources and exchanged gifts with neighbouring clans and mobs during times of ceremony and gathering together to make special times” - Trent Nelson, Chair Dja Dja Wurrung Corporation.
