Both Sides of the Street brings together artists from different disciplines with different perspectives on what it means to live in contemporary Australian society; what it means to live on both sides of the street. It will include works that are a direct result of dialogue between artists from different communities. Contemporary artists from culturally and linguistically diverse backgrounds will be invited to work with contemporary First Peoples artists, exchanging personal experiences, beliefs and traditional and spiritual knowledge. Both sides of the Street is an exchange and celebration of cultural identity through art making, and is part of an ongoing dialogue within global Indigenous societies.
