Wauchope has a new creative hub, and its first project is especially for kids.

The newly Incorporated Jacaranda House Creative Hub is to host a Children's NAIDOC Week art competition and exhibition.

Local BIrrbay Aboriginal artist, Angela Marr-Grogan is passionate about art and also the revival of her traditional language of Gathang.

Along with fellow Jacaranda House Creative Hub committee member Vana Ford, they are offering schoolchildren in the Hastings area an opportunity to submit works of art celebrating this year's NAIDOC Week theme.

The theme is Our Languages Matter and winning entries will be exhibited in one of Wauchope’s most beautiful buildings, Jacaranda House in Cameron Street.

Angela says a NAIDOC art-focused competition is important.

“I’m passionate about celebrating my culture through art and language,” she said.

“This is the perfect opportunity to celebrate both.”

Jacaranda House Creative Hub is an incorporated association dedicated to providing creative and performing arts opportunities to artists and promising young people.  

They will be conducting fundraising activities in the future and applying for grants to realise their mission.
