One Love, One Family: Barngarla Stories of Resilience

October 10 – November 13, 2015

The One love, one family exhibition showcases the outcomes of the Barngarla: Stories of Resilience Project that involved Barngarla people from Port Augusta, South Australia, in particular the Dare family. Barngarla: Stories of Resilience was an innovative 2014 project that used the processes of narrative therapy and artmaking for individual and community healing.

Nexus Arts and the Dulwich Centre Foundation developed the initial project concept, combining narrative therapy and artmaking. Artist Heather Shearer led the artmaking workshops, and her experience and passion were invaluable to the delivery and success of the overall project. Barngarla: Stories of Resilience was a pilot project, and the Barngarla people guided every step, helping to direct its delivery as well as establish a framework for future communities.
