Projected on the CAM façade every evening from 7:30pm, our latest Terrace Projection is a new body of photographs by James Henry, with Henry Harmony Nelson's Descendants – the Saunders family from Mooroopna – meeting at Marna bulatj dharak (Meeting of arms), Lake Eppalock.
This new series, as part of 18 Families, follows James Henry's previous exhibition and interviews with the Jaara community, of four families on Country, commissed by CAM in 2021. 18 Families recognises the 18 ancestors whose descendants make up the thriving Jaara community who live in, around and beyond Castlemaine on Dja Dja Wurrung Country today.
Terrace Projections are supported by the Restart Investment to Sustain and Expand (RISE) Fund – an Australian Government initiative.
