Redlands Coast Islands Festival

Redlands Coast Islands Festival

October 1, 2021, 5:00pm - October 4, 2021, 2:00pm

Redlands Coast Islands

We hoped that this day wouldn't come but we knew it was a risk when we commenced the planning process for the festival.

After much deliberation and uncertainty created by growing interstate numbers of positive COVID-19 cases with the Delta variant along with possible further lockdowns and other restrictions in Queensland, the Redlands Coast Islands Festival Management Committee have made the difficult decision to postpone the Festival along with the Sea Market.

It's our first priority to keep all our community safe and as we were looking towards a record crowd this year, we have felt this decision is the safest option for our community.

We strongly believe this decision is in the best interest of all our community and postponing the Redlands Coast Islands Festival until 2022 will give time for a safer and more stable environment in the community and allow us to expand our festival program with presenting our best festival yet.

Some of the smaller events that were planned to take place during the Redlands Coast Islands Festival may still take place. We will continue to promote and support these low risk events. Please stay tuned for updates.

We understand the importance of community events to the wellbeing of healthy and active communities. They bring people together to connect, share, grow, dance and learn. We are currently exploring options to deliver a handful of smaller community events across the islands aimed towards our island communities. These events most likely won’t take place over the original festival long weekend.

Thank you for your understanding, all our hard work will continue behind the scenes and rolled over into the 2022 Redlands Coast Islands Festival. Cheers Jeremy Staples, Shirley Lindsay and Shane Rendalls (Redlands Coast Islands Festival Management Committee)

THE READING GROUP: THE YIELD BY TARA JUNE WINCH

THE READING GROUP: THE YIELD BY TARA JUNE WINCH

July 29, 2021, 4:00pm - July 29, 2021, 6:00pm

University of the Sunshine Coast Art Gallery90 Sippy Downs DriveSunshine Coast, QLD4556 Map

The Reading Group provides a platform for critical thinking and discussion around the ideas presented in our exhibitions. Fiction and non-fiction titles are selected to connect with and contextualise the exhibitions and discussion is facilitated by Dr Penny Holliday.

Participants are required to source a copy of the book. All selected books are in print and readily available from booksellers and online.

For Country In Mind we read The Yield by Tara June Winch.

The yield in English is the reaping, the things that man can take from the land. In the language of the Wiradjuri yield is the things you give to, the movement, the space between things—baayanha.

Knowing that he will soon die, Albert 'Poppy' Gondiwindi takes pen to paper. His life has been spent on the banks of the Murrumby River at Prosperous House, on Massacre Plains. Albert is determined to pass on the language of his people and everything that was ever remembered. He finds the words on the wind.

August Gondiwindi has been living on the other side of the world for ten years when she learns of her grandfather's death. She returns home for his burial, wracked with grief and burdened with all she tried to leave behind. Her homecoming is bittersweet as she confronts the love of her kin and news that Prosperous is to be repossessed by a mining company. Determined to make amends she endeavours to save their land—a quest that leads her to the voice of her grandfather and into the past, the stories of her people, the secrets of the river.

Winner of the 2020 Miles Franklin Literary Award.

TALKING COUNTRY IN MIND

TALKING COUNTRY IN MIND

July 24, 2021, 3:00pm

University of the Sunshine Coast Art Gallery90 Sippy Downs DriveSunshine Coast, QLD4556 Map

For Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people the term ‘Country’ is used as an expression of the relationship between an individual and their ancestral lands and seas. As Country in Mind curator, Christopher Bassi explains 'Connection to Country is inherent: we are born to it, it is how we identify ourselves, it is our family, our laws, our inheritance, and our legacy'.

Moderated by Bassi, the panel will include Troy Casey from Blaklash Creative, and artists Elisa Jane Carmichael, Libby Harward and BJ Murphy.

The event will be followed by an artist talk and preview of a new moving image work projected onto the facade of USC Art Gallery by Lyndon Davis called Beeyali 2021.

Beeyali has been commissioned for New Light 2021, a showcase of experimental and diverse moving image works by contemporary First Nations artists presented by Illuminate Adelaide and ANAT.

PRESENTERS

Troy Casey is a proud Aboriginal man from Kamilaroi country north-west New South Wales. Troy has a Bachelor of Journalism from QUT. Troy has experience working for not-for-profits, government, tertiary education, private and corporate sectors. He has a keen interest in business and advocating for self-sustainability and economic development for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander individuals and communities.

Quandamooka woman Elisa Jane Carmichael is a multidisciplinary artist who honours her salt-water heritage by incorporating materials collected from Country, embracing traditional techniques, and expressing contemporary adaptations through painting, weaving, and textiles. She comes from a family of artists and curators, and works closely with her female kin to revive, nurture, and preserve cultural knowledge and practice.

Libby Harward is a descendant of the Ngugi people of Mulgumpin (Moreton Island) in the Quandamooka (Moreton Bay Area). Known for her early work as an urban graffiti artist under the pseudonym of ‘Mz Murricod’, and her performance-based community activism, Harward’s recent series, ALREADY OCCUPIED, engages a continual process of re-calling, re-hearing, re-mapping, re-contextualising, de-colonising and re-instating on Country that which colonisation has denied Australia’s First Peoples.

BJ Murphy is a contemporary Aboriginal artist who takes inspiration from his Country in the Sunshine Coast hinterland. BJ is both a visual artist, curator and songman who is dedicated to the continuation of his Jinibara culture. Through his paintings, carvings, wood burnings, songs, and curatorial work he holds a deep responsibility to his culture and the representation of stories that have been passed down to him by his family. His unique style mixes both traditional and contemporary forms and concepts.

Lyndon Davis is an internationally acclaimed Aboriginal Artist, educator and Cultural performer. Lyndon was born and raised on the Sunshine Coast, and is a Traditional Custodian and representative of the Local Gubbi Gubbi / Kabi Kabi people. His work is held in national and international collections and has been commissioned by various high-profile organisations, museums and art collectors. His experimental art practise has been commissioned for festivals including Floating Land and Horizon Festival where he has developed immersive installations, interactive experiences and large-scale projection artworks featuring his Kabi Kabi designs.

This is a free event. Bookings essential.
