Spark Artist Talks is an informal lunchtime artist talk series hosted by grunt gallery in the Native Education College longhouse on the third Thursday of each month. This event features emerging Indigenous artists with diverse practices ranging from animation to street art, spoken word to sculpture. Bring your bagged lunch or grab some home cookin’ from the NEC’s canteen and join the fireside conversation about what inspires artists.
