Paintbrushes needed for Northern Territory.
This would be for Australia only as we have just three weeks to collect and deliver them.
Can you help out a remote community in the Northern Territory?
Paintbrushes old and new needed
Gurindji Project Paintbrushes.
The Gurindji people live in the remote Northern Territory town , called Kalkaringi, 800 kms south west of Darwin, nearest biggest town is Katherine 400 kms away.
A converted small power station was refurbished to become an Art Space from the proceeds of selling the book “From Little Things Big Things Grow” which is the story based on their Freedom Walk 50 years ago this August. Penny Smith an Art teacher from Queensland went to help set the Art Space up five years ago and is still there. A call has gone out for paintbrushes, new or used. My friend Galia will be travelling there on 5th August to deliver them.
This is a very small community of 600 people with very few facilities/materials and or things to do. Well done Penny Smith you are amazing.
Delivery of Brushes
I am happy to receive them here in Alphington (firstname.lastname@example.org) for address. Another drop off point is Cambridge Studio Gallery in Cambridge Street Collingwood. You can look their Gallery hours up and deliver there if it suits better.
Timeline: Just three weeks. Must pass them on by Monday 25th July.
Thankyou and happy hunting – Anne Warren
