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.





March 2017 — June 2018

The pilot for CETA was the Ukerbarley project, working with Gamilaroi community in Coonabarabran. Multimedia artist Annie McKinnon has mentored the lead artist Paris Norton in conceptual development for Ukerbarley, as the team works towards a merging of innovative practices with culture.

In 2018 the CETA program is being extended across the region, with programs in Wellington, Narromine and Nyngan. Each program is different, incorporating the landscape, culture and community of the area.
