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.
Age: 10 years old
My painting shows balance between animals and nature, and free wildlife with no pollution or rubbish in sight. The whole country would be like this if we healed it, with healthy animals and plants and not a dreary cloud of smoke, gas or other ghastly pollution. Then the Earth would be as wonderful as my balanced, free and healthy creation.
