NuunaRon is a group for Aboriginal and Torres Strait artists and emerging artists living with disability.

The name NuunaRon is used in memory of and out of respect for two of our Elders. Aunty Nuuna was a saltwater Noonuccal woman from Stradbroke and Uncle Ron was a Kamilaroi man. Both were beautiful artists who lived with disability, and made a valuable contribution by supporting others living with disability. Both have crossed over to the Dreaming and they are sadly missed by family and friends.

The NuunaRon group provides a welcoming and safe space for people to share stories of resilience and keeping strong via yarning, painting and creating art.

The group is supported by the E.L.D.A group (Elders Living With Disability Australia) who have representatives from Torres Strait, Far North Queensland, north east Queensland, NSW, South Australia and the Northern Territory.

NuunaRon United Nations Exhibition

Palais De Nations, Geneva - 2 to 14 September 2019

Cultural participation is good for our health. Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander culture has a strong foundation of knowledge exchange through art and storytelling, enabling communities to break down the challenges experienced by those with disability.

NuunaRon, in partnership with FPDN, have the opportunity to share their message with the world by taking their ‘NuunaRon’ exhibition to the United Nations Convention on the Rights of Persons with Disability to be held in Geneva this September, established to address the discrimination and inequality of people with disability worldwide.

The exhibition will promote their voices and provide an opportunity to build International advocacy partnerships.

The Exhibition will be shown at the Palais De Nations, United Nations Geneva and will run from 2 September to 14 September 2019.

Our culture is a gift to others, help us share our story with the world!
