Title: Connecting With The World!

Artist: Sylvia

Age: 16 years old

I have incorporated the 2020 NAIDOC theme “Always Was, Always Will Be” into my design as a proud Barkindji Aboriginal girl this theme resonates deeply within my cultural and family history. I am inspired by my aunty who creates beautiful aboriginal artworks. I have included traditional Aboriginal symbols that show how we respect our people, land and animals using gathering circles, emu and kangaroo tracks. I have drawn a close fist in the middle to symbolises the strength and the hardships my people have faced and the hands around the fist to symbolise unity, communication and connecting with others. I believe this is an important message, as we must continue to share our knowledge and culture with future generations to preserve our history and make change happen.
