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: heart of country

Artist: Fern

Age: 12 years old

I did this artwork because I think that the heart of our country is nature, and to heal our country, nature needs to take back what has been stolen. The bright reds and greens represent nature, and the greys and dark blues represent the land stolen by humans. The plants represent love growing in the cracks of a wasteland. I hope that one day the land will heal and we will live in peace with nature.
