Re-gathering Community Party

AfroDance_Kwabo-Events.jpg

In keeping with the spirit of the recent exhibition Re-gathering, we invite the community to come together for a fantastic and free party at Benalla Art Gallery!

Saturday 24 July will be filled with art events inviting our community to re-gather as we explore our COVID-normal world.

From isolation, to finding peace in mindful activities, to shared emotions and experiences, Re-gathering focused on the power of human resilience in times of adversity.

As we come together stronger as a community, enjoy life drawing, craft, music, dance, and outdoor RACV activities with free coffee, sausage sizzle and popcorn!

All visitors must check-in via QR codes and are required to observe hygiene and physical distancing practices, and capacity restrictions marked in individual Gallery spaces at all times.
