The word boomalli is derived from three different NSW indigenous language groups, meaning to strike or to make a mark. Boomalli Aboriginal Artists Cooperative is one of Australia's longest running Aboriginally owned and operated art galleries. Established in 1987, Boomalli is the only gallery dedicated to promoting New South Wales Aboriginal art in all its diversity. Originally formed by ten founding members to host a one-off exhibition, titled Boomalli au go go, Boomalli recently celebrated its 25th anniversary.

Speakers include Euphemia Bostock, founding member and current chair of Boomali; Keith Munro, curator of Ripple Effect: Boomalli Founding Members; Tina Baum from the National Gallery of Australia; and Nicole Monks, Boomalli artist.

This is a free event running as part of
Art Month Sydney.
