This time last year I had just come back from working on The Circuit having spent three and a half months in Broome- a magical part of Australia.
I was lucky enough to spend time with the wonderful people at Short Street Gallery.
Short St is the longest indigenous running gallery in Broome, the gallery endeavours to purchase indigenous artworks from established and reputable community owned Art Centres. This ensures that artists are paid the market value for their work and the integrity and reputation of the artist is respected.
Short St has been responsible for showcasing many spectacular artists that many otherwise never have been seen such as Alma Webou, Jan Billycan, Lydia Balbal Gjinabalyi.
