NuunaRon is a group for Aboriginal and Torres Strait artists and emerging artists living with disability.
The NuunaRon Art Group operates the NuunaRon Hub on the sunshine coast, a welcoming and safe space for people to share stories of resilience and keeping strong via yarning, painting and creating art and be supported.
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 group is an initiative of First Peoples Disability Network (Australia) and is supported by our 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.
