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: Beautiful Country
Age: 15 years old
My painting is full of people working together to heal the land. These people care about the land and they want it to be healthy. These colours are like a healthy happy environment. This painting is about a healed country, which to me is a beautiful place. It’s the whole families job to heal the land. In this image a healed country is full of life, full of colour and the plants and animals are growing and alive. My painting has a healthy ocean which is blue, clean and clear, which is an important part of a healed country.
