Campbelltown Arts Centre's new mural saw young Indigenous Australians collaborating with leading international artists image

Contemporary artists Richard Bell and Emory Douglas created a large-scale mural directly onto the gallery walls at Campbelltown Arts Centre in Western Sydney over two weeks as part of the Edge of Elsewhere exhibition.

The mural project was a collaboration between respected Australian indigenous artist Richard Bell of the Kamilaroi language group in Charleville, Queensland and Michigan-based US artist Emory Douglas, along with a small group of local young Indigenous community members from the Campbelltown region. The project explores contemporary and historical issues including moral and political struggles and social activism through the use of humour and personal expression.
