Wominjeka (Welcome). We acknowledge the Yaluk-ut Weelam as the traditional custodians of the land on which we meet. Yaluk-ut Weelam means ‘people of the river camp’ and is connected with the coastal land at the head of Port Phillip Bay, extending from the Werribee River to Mordialloc. The Yaluk-ut Weelam are part of the Boon Wurrung, one of the five major language groups of the greater Kulin Nation. We pay our respects to the land, their ancestors and their elders—past, present and to the future.

  • Taking some time in regional Victoria? We highly recommend taking in some art and swinging by Benalla Art Gallery. 
We're thrilled to be partnering with @theracv and @benallaartgallery to present 'Re-gathering' as part of the AMPLIFY Program.   In response to the exhibition, join a conversation on resilience that brings together artist @kirstinberg, Sally Matheson (Tomorrow Today Foundation) and artist @joshmuir_art to reflect on 2020 and how community can build resilience.   ​Moderated by RACV Head of Visual Arts Mardi Nowak, panellists will reflect on the skills we gained whilst looking at some new ones as a community. For some, it was through creative practice (art and baking), for others it was re-engaging with nature.   ​​This event is taking place in person at Benalla Art Gallery and will also be available online as part of AMPLIFY.
