Brown’s Mart is thrilled to announce two new Artistic Associates, Nadine Lee and James Mangohig, who will join Cj Fraser-Bell.

Nadine and James have each already made a substantial contribution to the NT arts ecology and bring extensive experience, both as artists and as community leaders, to Brown’s Mart in these new roles. Together, these three Artistic Associates will lead the design and development of Brown’s Mart’s artistic programs, ensuring they reflect NT stories and experiences, and broaden our engagement with artists and communities.

“Brown’s Mart has long been home to important Gulumerridjin Larrakia stories, artists and creatives. It is an honour to join the team as an Artistic Associate and bring our deep cultural knowledges and ways of working to this place and program. I’m so excited to work with James and CJ, and of course the First Nations Artistic Advisory Group on the next chapter of Brown’s Mart’s artistic program. I look forward to meeting everyone.” Nadine

“I care about this place a lot, always have, and as a local artist and producer, I am so excited to be joining the team at Brown's Mart as an Artistic Associate. Even though we're approaching the holiday season, I already can't wait to get started and to work alongside Nadine and CJ to build and deliver an exciting, locally engaged and dynamic program. Local artists - hit me up - let's connect and have a yarn about the future!” James

“Always, we’re undoubtably stronger together. I’m so thrilled to begin working alongside James and Nadine as they join the BM team as Artistic Associates.” Cj

“This is an incredibly exciting time for Brown’s Mart with the appointment of two inspiring, generous and highly respected artists whose leadership will inject fresh energy into our commitment to shaking things up at Brown’s Mart.” Sophia
