Creators Artspace is currently open from 10.30am till 4.00pm – Thursday till Saturday.
From Saturday 15th May to Saturday 10 July 2021 at the Filkenstein Gallery
As Glennys explains – ‘My name is Glennys Briggs. I am a YortaYorta/Taungurung woman from Central Victoria. I have cultural affiliations with my great grandmother’s people, the Wiradjurri in Central NSW and my father’s adopted family of Mannalegenna’s Palawa people in Tasmania.
“After the fact”, this phrase is often used in legal terms, meaning that after a crime is committed the facts can’t be changed, so it is with history. However writers have continually blurred the lines when writing about the invasion and colonization of this country. The oral statement of facts from the Indigenous view was never taken into account. I do not nor will not compromise with the telling through an Indigenous lens’
The exhibition will run from Saturday 15th May to Saturday 10 July 2021.
We look forward to hosting an opening event and talk with Glennys Briggs on Saturday 12 June at 3pm
