One of the best things about living in Casula is being close to so much art and culture.
I know I have mentioned the Casula Powerhouse quite a few times in my blog, but it is simply such a great place and there is always something there worth seeing.
There is currently an exhibition at the Casual Powerhouse called the Body Pacifica-Connecting you to the Islands, that I have heard is particularly worth seeing.
“Discover more than 30 objects from the Australian Museum’s Pacific Collection. Five contemporary Pacific Islander artists will create new artworks which animate these precious objects originally used for body adornment and ceremony. Archival photographs from the 1880s by Reverend George Brown, a unique figure in bringing Christianity to Pacific communities, will also be shown capturing Pacific culture and society from Samoa, Tonga and Papua New Guinea. Local Western Sydney youth will also tell their stories in short digital videos, providing a vibrant snap shot of islander life in the suburbs.”
The exhibition runs until the 29th of August and if you go let me know what you thought of it.
