Nandhi (Look) Ngara (Listen)

Nandhi (Look) Ngara (Listen) is a community reconciliation artwork project with children from Warrawong and Corrimal East Public Schools, Para Meadows School, Keiraview Childcare Centre and young people of Five Islands Secondary College. Supported by Aboriginal artist Daren Dunn and Adam Towney from AT_Culture, the children and young people have created artwork inspired by Reconciliation and NAIDOC. The beautiful artwork has been printed on banners and will be flown in Crown Street Mall until the end of July 2023. We are proud to acknowledge and celebrate Aboriginal culture in our city. Some schools held workshops for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander students, while other schools combined both Aboriginal and non-Aboriginal students to create Reconciliation banners.ย ย 

You can see the original student's artwork in the Curio Gallery, Church Street Wollongong from 25 May 2023 - 31 July 2023.
