ARTWORK STORY

TRAVERSING COUNTRY’ by Gilimbaa artist David Williams (Wakka Wakka).

These elements represent the strength and vibrancy of First Nations people all over Australia. We are diverse and culturally strong peoples with humour to share and stories to tell. We are forever connected to Country, our families, and our communities.

Continuity of culture is one of the most important things for First Nations peoples. Our health and wellbeing is strengthened by these connections. The connections here are represented as a continual line from left to right; the line has no end.

As we walk on, feel, and see our Country, we are connected.
