Lithgow City Council is inviting artists and community members to submit artworks for a special exhibition documenting the 2019/20 Black Summer bushfires.

The exhibition, titled ReNew, will be hosted at the Union Theatre Gallery in the lead up to the major bushfire readiness expo being planned for later this year. ReNew will present artworks by the local community that respond to the bushfires, capturing our collective experience and subsequent journey to recovery and resilience.

“The fires marked a major chapter in people’s lives.” Mayor Ray Thompson said. “As well as the extreme devastation, the exhibition will reflect upon and honour the remarkable displays of service, courage, hope and strength.”

Lithgow City Council is now calling for submissions from people who live, work or study in the Lithgow region whose artwork responds to the impact of the 2019/20 bushfires. Artworks can be of any medium including photographs, digital, performance, sculptures and stories.

Important dates:

-      Entry forms due Tuesday 10th August 2021

-      artworks delivered to Union Theatre 5th and 6th September

-      exhibition opening Friday 10th September 6pm

-      exhibition dates 10th – 19th September

See attached entry form. For questions relating to the exhibition or assistance to connect with support services, including mental health, contact Rachel Nicoll on phone 02 6354 9999 or email .

The exhibition is presented by Lithgow City Council thanks to the Federal Government, National Bushfire Recovery Agency and the NSW State Government through Resilience NSW as part of the Bushfire Community Recovery and Resilience Fund.
