CETA is a digital arts engagement program of experimental labs with Aboriginal communities across the Orana Region. This project is inspired by contemporary arts practice, developed for cultural sustainability and driven by Aboriginal people. Our innovative process will work across art forms, disciplines, nature, technology and culture.

After a successful pilot program in Coonabarabran, working with local community and Aboriginal area Ukerbarley, Orana Arts are excited to announce the next leg of CETA in Wellington! 

The Ceta team is joined by emerging videographer Justin Riley and visual artist Alan Riley, as we explore the landscape, history and connection of Wellington and its community; weaving these stories into educational and creative outcomes. 

Over the past month the CETA team have been visiting local community groups and Elders, learning about the history of Wellington and the aspirations of the community.
