Aboriginal artists workshop with Max Conlon:

A great chance to hear from and see artist Max Conlon in action. Max will be sharing about his distinctive style of painting as well as demonstrating his approach that powerfully combines spirituality, story, history and theology.
Brothers Max and Robin (Goma) Conlon were raised amongst 14 siblings in the Cherbourg Aboriginal settlement in south east Queensland and are descendants of the Kabi Kabi/Kullali tribes.
Max is an established artist and has been painting for 35 years, Robin has been painting for the last 14 years. They have exhibited extensively throughout the east coast of Australia, collaborating on murals and art projects with cultural community outcomes.
Their family traditions have inspired a unique body of work which utilises traditional and contemporary symbols to communicate stories of life experiences.
Funds raised from the sales of artworks from the Jisas wantaim Art Exhibition will go towards supporting the training of emerging Aboriginal and Torres Straight Islander Christian leaders. This is a fantastic way of not only owning a unique work of Aboriginal art, but you’ll also be supporting a significant ministry of Indigenous leadership development.
Please pray for safe traveling for Lloyd and Gay Marie and children as they make the long return trip to Melbourne from Cairns this week.
Pray for work for Lloyd and stability for the family, especially Chrissy (yr 12) and Siyon (Yr 11).

KAAL means 'fire' in the Noongar language. We wish to fan into flames the ashes and the coal, into a revival fire that ignites spirit, soul and body! Bringing healing and restoration to the people as we partner together! That will bridge the gap between English and Aboriginal Australia as we honor the Noongar people and strengthen our native partnerships. What we do in bringing healing will have a flow on effect over all peoples as the Aboriginal people heal.
In opening a prophetic highway between PNG and Western Australia, we are opening a way where the land of Holiness (Australia) and the land of Agreement (PNG) stand together, building up the highway!
