Michael and Jo Connolly of Dreamtime Kullilla-Art are pleased to announce the official opening of their newly renovated Aboriginal Art & Craft Retail Shop/Gallery and completion of the new Culture Cave on 16th & 17th May 2015 at their business complex situated at Units 7 & 3/349-351 MacDonnell Road, Clontarf on the Redcliffe Peninsula
A decision last year was made to expand the business to include more Retail space to house the ever increasing range of beautiful authentic quality Aboriginal designed products. Such products range from keyrings and bookmarks to bags, jewellery and materials and a comprehensive range of Bush Tucker Products plus a brand new area (the Culture Cave @ Unit 3 in the same complex) to host and conduct a range of workshops such as Bush Tucker Awareness and Aboriginal Cultural Workshops as well as providing a unique space for hire.
Dreamtime Kullilla-Art have been operating on the Redcliffe Peninsula for nearly 20 years starting with a small tarp at the local markets selling a few didgeridoos to the large store front premises they have today. Michael is an internationally renowned Aboriginal Artist, Craftsman, Didgeridoo Performer and Cultural & Spiritual Educator and has performed and exhibited internationally, nationally, regionally and locally. He is also a Traditional Owner of the Kullilli/Murawarri Nations and a respected Aboriginal Statesman and Cultural Ambassador for his People.
