Mark-making Student Workshop | with Ron Bradfield Jnr

This event has been cancelled. The Art Gallery of WA apologises for any inconvenience.

“Who are we on this country, how do we consider ourselves here? How do we think about our sense of place and belonging - on a land that is all at once very, very old - in a country that is actually very, very young!"

Ron Bradfield Jnr will invite students to consider and map their sense of self, on a timeline outlining this country’s contemporary history and challenge how they see their stories, in this place!

"Then, we can make our own marks and see what art comes of it! Come and make your mark and come and explore your story.”
Ron Bradfield Jnr

This is a 2 hour workshop.
Recommended for ages 13-18 years.
All supplies and equipment will be provided.

About the artist

Ron Bradfield Jnr is a saltwater man from Bardi Country, north of Broome but grew up in Geraldton, Western Australia! He now calls Whadjuk Boodjar (Perth) his home. As the CYO (Chief Yarning Officer) of Yarns R Us; Ron facilitates cultural conversations across all levels of our communities, helping Australians to revisit and explore their own personal stories - so as to better consider their own connections to this place - their home! Ron is also a storyteller and a maker of things; he has worked in and around the arts across remote, regional and metropolitan Western Australia for 15 years - often supporting the development of artists - as they explore the ways in which they can grow and share their creative practices.

AGWA is closed until 16 October for a final stage of redevelopment works. Details
