Community Offering: The Burrangong Affray

YOUNG, NSW. 21 April. From 10am

You are invited.

4A Centre for Contemporary Asian Art is leading a community event with Australian-Chinese artists Jason Phu and John Young Zerunge in response the to events of The Burrangong Affray, including the Lambing Flat Riots, 1860 -1861.

We invite the community of Young and the surrounding areas to join the artists as they create a tribute at Chinese Cemetery, Murrumburrah and Blackguard Gully, Young. At each site the artists will lead us in a ceremony of incense burning, offerings and ceremonial gestures to welcome good luck and banish the bad spirits of the past.

Join the artists as they pay tribute to these sites and these historic events.

Please Bring:
Something that makes noise, a pot or a pan, a whistle, a recorder or a drum.

This event forms part The Burrangong Affray: Jason Phu & John Young Zerunge exhibition.
