Limboland - Exhibition

Opening Night: Friday 14 June 6 - 8pm

The Refugee Action Collective and the Eurobodalla Shire Council are co-hosting 3 events for Refugee Week.

Lachie Hinton, LIMBOLAND: ExhibitionExhibition runs from Saturday 15 June - 7 July 2019

The Basil Sellers Exhibition Centre

Corner of Vulcan Street and Campbell Street Moruya, NSW 2537

LIMBOLAND presents in full Lachie Hinton’s work around human displacement, refugees and migration in response to two significant immigration events of recent times; the European refugee crisis in 2016 and Australia’s controversial offshore detention program. His painting, drawings, photographs and documentary film explore the different experiences of people upended by conflict and oppression, and show the human story of ordinary people displaced by war and terror.

Lachie Hinton is an Australian figurative artist based in Sydney. His work explores the human experience of contemporary social and political forces. Examining humanity across contemporary society and culture, he characterises his subjects with an expressive interpretation of experience. Through painting, drawing and photojournalism, Hinton’s stylized imagery oscillates between crisis points and the quotidian moments of everyday life.

Saturday 15 June, 11am - 12noon

"Share a meal, share a story" after Saturday's morning Panel discussion

Saturday 15 June, 12:30pm - 2:00pm

Following the panel discussion, the Bas, in collaboration with Eurobodalla Shire Council’s Community Development and the Refugee Action Collective, Eurobodalla would like to invite you to share a meal and share a story. This event is part of the official Refugee Week celebrations which uses food as the conduit of bringing people together. Coupled with storytelling we hope this event will educate while also providing an opportunity to meet new people and hear firsthand stories from a refugee. Please bring a plate of your favourite food that is representative of your ethnic or cultural background. All welcome.
