New Work by Amardeep Shergill, recipient of the TAC 2017 Emerging Artist Support Scheme Award at ANU.

Working across media, Amardeep used a traditional and culturally significant object as the starting point for her body of work – a hand embroidered Phulkaris. She explores the notions of belonging, identity and liminality, from the position of existing in between cultures. Shergill’s artworks speak of mixed heritage, multiculturalism and moving forward with the past in our stride.
“This body of work was inspired by a story my grandmother told me three years ago. A story that gave me a renewed awareness of the value of one surviving phulkari handed down to me by my great grandmother,” Shergill said.

Exhibition continues until Saturday 24 November, 2018

Thursday 15 November - Saturday 24 November

The Schools Reconciliation Challenge is an annual art and writing competition for primary and high school students across NSW and the ACT, hosted by Reconciliation NSW.

Our Voices, Our Future is about celebrating the voices of young people and empowering students to recognise that their voices matter.

Young people are our future and every young person has a unique and important role to play in contributing their voices to reconciliation.

Our Voices, Our Future is also about acknowledging and valuing the place of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples voices and perspectives within Australia’s national story and reconciliation journey.

This exhibition showcases young people’s visions for their futures and a reconciled Australia.

Exhibition opens Thursday November 15 and continues until Thursday 20 December, 2018.

Saturday 24 November 11am - 2pm

Join artists Nathan J Lester and Rebecca Selleck for a 2-hour sculpture workshop and help the artists complete their sculptural works in the Laneway off Anketell Street from  11am - 1pm. 

Constructing from the concrete remnants of demolished buildings, Bec Selleck creates rubble towers which will be planted with local native species. Participating members of the public will explore plants that would have grown in the now urban area, and have the opportunity to reconsider the aesthetics of this particular space, central to Tuggeranong.

I AM and I HOPE, a sculpture by Nathan J Lester, will represent the people of Tuggeranong community and their hopes for the future. Contributors are asked to share something of themselves with one positive word and one hope for the future, which will all be joined to create large sculptures.

SouthFest @ Tuggeranong Arts Centre 

Saturday 24 November 1pm - 4pm

Join us in The Hunting Lodge, our lakeside bar, for a drink and an afternoon of live music with Lulu Swing  and The Fuelers.

Lulu Swing is a Canberra Swing/Hot Club/Latin acoustic jazz lineup featuring: Angelo O’Reilly (guitar); Douglas Macnicol (violin); Consul O’Reilly (upright bass); Ron Cameron (guitar); Rich Starke (guitar); Jonathan Jones (percussion). The band will be joined by Monica Moore on vocals.

The Fuelers play original material, drawing from bluegrass & oldtime, swing, rockabilly, country, and 70’s TV commercials. It’s a style that crosses borders, to say the least.


The final Twilight Classical Concert 

Sunday 25 November 5pm

The New England Ensemble has re-formed for ‘A European Odyssey’ for Strings and Piano – a once-only concert on Sunday 25 November at the Tuggeranong Arts Centre. This will be the final concert in the Arts Centre’s sell out Sunday afternoon classical music series.

Hailed nationally and internationally as among Australia’s leading chamber musicians – and with forty-plus years across thirty-plus countries and four continents of concert-giving to their credit – the New England Ensemble re-joins to present a “European Odyssey” of music for strings and piano.

Highlights include Dvorak’s enchanting Piano Quartet in D major – a perfect foil for both the dramatic G minor Quartet of Mozart and Brahms’ hauntingly beautiful Andante in E major.
