CreARTivity ‘Our Island’   

‘Our Island’ is a picture book collaboration by the children of Gununa, Mornington Island in the Gulf of Carpentaria, with author/illustrators Alison Lester and Elizabeth Honey.  Using the wax resist method with vibrant watercolour washes,  children create sea inspired artworks that celebrate this unique environment and our commitment to our elders to care for country.

 

NAIDOC Week Art

Bobbi Lockyer, a proud Ngarluma, Kariyarra, Nyulnyul and Yawuru artist from Kariyarra Country, Port Headland created the 2023 NAIDOC Week artwork, ‘For Our Elders’. Drawing inspiration from the colours, patterns and images contained in this work, children use oil pastels to create artworks reflecting on the importance of elders and our commitment to care for country.

 

NAIDOC Week Stories

‘Our Home, Our Heartbeat’ is a celebration of famous past and present Indigenous people, as well as emerging generations, and at its heart honours the oldest continuous culture on earth. Inspired by the song, ‘The Children Came Back’ by Adam Briggs, lyricist, artist and proud Indigenous Australian of the Yorta Yorta people, the book empowers all children to become whoever they aspire to be.
