Maitland Memoir

Riverlights Multicultural Festival is Maitland’s first celebration of cultural diversity. It celebrates the vibrant interaction of diverse cultures, some well-established, others new and emerging.
Maitland Regional Art Gallery is liasing with two young artists, Trine Deans and Kate Parker, to create an artwork that will be a vibrant part of Riverlights on Saturday 13 October when Kate and Trine will be working on Maitland Memoir in the Maitland Heritage Mall for all to see. Trine and Kate have created the idea of Maitland Memoir as a cabinet of curiosities and they need your input.
Maitland Memoir is about recording and displaying the stories and history of Maitland in an artwork full of objects that have a connection to Maitland and to the cultures of the people who make up Maitland.
If you want to contribute to our project we'd love your objects and your stories. Your object should be small and significant.
Pop into Maitland Regional Art Gallery to collect your envelope for your contribution and bring it back to the gallery over the weeks leading up to Saturday 13 October, Riverlights Day.
