In celebration of this year’s NAIDOC Week theme “Heal Country”, we are inviting young artists aged 6-16 years old, Australia-wide to create an original artwork that shares their culture, ceremony and spiritual connection to Country. The entry that best reflects the theme will receive a $500 Yarn voucher and have their design printed as a limited edition Yarn collection.

100% of the profits from the limited edition collection sales will go to the following non-profit organizations; ALNF (Australian Literacy and Numeracy Foundation), Nutrition Plus,  Gunawirra & Surat Aboriginal Corporation. Each of these organisations aims to improve the lives of Indigenous communities, specifically children and their families.

Title: We Need Your Help

Artist: Jett

Age: 8 years old

This painting represents the importance of healing country and I am asking for your help in protecting it. This is important for my generation and generations to come. So much damage has already happened and I believe if we all work together we can change how we treat the land and waters we can begin to make a start in healing country. I love walking on country and going to the beach. It makes me sad when I find rubbish and other things that shouldn't be there. We can all work together and protect our animals and land if we all just help.
