“SharingStories” by Liz Thompson

I met Liz in PNG way back, we went on to share a studio in Chippendale with Sand Edwards – before it was Hip – and then lived a couple of floors apart in the fabulous Silk-Knit building in Surry Hlls, until we were kicked out.

Her multi-media show at the Manly Art Gallery is truly inspirational as is the Foundation she has created. There is nothing self-indulgent or navel gazing about this work it is pure story telling at its best and most important.

“SharingStories Foundation works with Indigenous communities to protect, maintain and grow language, stories and cultural heritage.”

“A not-for-profit organisation led by a passionate Board with equal representation of Indigenous and non-Indigenous Australians, the Foundation came into being after Founder and CEO Liz Thompson, responded to a request from Annie Nayina Milgin. Annie a Nyikina Mangala Senior Cultural Custodian and now fellow Sharing Stories Director asks Liz, to ” help our young people tell their stories using modern technology”

The show is on until the 9th July and hit the link to find out more about SharingStories.
