Event Details

Jabu Birriny, meaning ‘land’ and ‘sea’, celebrates the unique environment of Yarrabah and its ongoing importance to culture and people. Located on the shore of Cape Grafton FNQ, Yarrabah is the traditional Country of the Gunggandji people. It is a dynamic Aboriginal community surrounded by tropical native bushland and mountain ranges united by sandy coastlines and coral reefs.

This exhibition showcases stories rich in past and recent histories with vibrant prints, textiles and ceramics.  Jabu Birriny (land + sea) was developed by State Library of Queensland in partnership with Yarrabah Arts and Cultural Precinct. The YACP artists are Philomena Yeatman, Michelle Yeatman, Valmai Pollard, Edna Ambrym, Ruben Ambrym, and the exhibition includes also independent artist, Elverina Johnson. Flying Arts Alliance is touring the exhibition with a full suite of arts and cultural engagement programs Queensland-wide 2019 – 2021.

Jabu Birriny (land + sea) will be on display at the Menmuny Museum Gallery, Yarrabah Arts and Cultural Precinct, June 14 – 31 July 2019.
