Aunty Ros and her amazing volunteer team set up Townsville’s only Indigenous owned and run Arts & Culture Centre. Since acquiring the lease on the building late last year, Aunty Ros has done the basic fit-out of the space but she needs funds to get signage up on the facade of their building and to market the arts centre and their programs.
What is the Big Eye Arts & Culture Centre?
It is an Indigenous Arts and Culture business that showcases, promotes and preserves Aboriginal & Torres Strait Islander Art, Culture and Stories. The centre has a shop, a gallery and a flexible studio and outdoor area. Big Eye produces and hosts the Townville Blak Art Markets every second Saturday. Every Thursday they run a Cultural food day for the general public to enjoy Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander dishes while meeting and getting to know artists and performers who work with the centre. Artists can create art on site and offer regular workshops. They also run arts and cultural education for schools and workspaces.
The Big Eye Arts & Culture Centre is run by Aunty Rosalind Sailor and an incredible group of volunteers. https://www.facebook.com/aboriginalartcentretsv
