North East Water is using the façade of its head office in Wodonga as a canvas to project images of art work, created by local Aboriginal artists to celebrate Naidoc Week.
Naidoc Week celebrates the history, culture and achievements of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples. This years’ theme, Heal Country, seeks institutional, structural, and collaborative reforms that will resolve many injustices that continue to affect our First Nations people.
The North East Water art project will be projecting images of art created by renowned north-east and border artists, including Stephen Berger, Mick Bogie, Kelly Lock and Karin McMillan.
Executive Corporate Services, Anthony Hernan, says:
“All the artwork has a water theme which recognises the strong cultural connection that First Nations people have to the land and water within this region. The projection is another small step in our reconciliation journey with the Traditional Owners of the lands on which we operate.”
“We hope this art projection helps demonstrate our respect for their elders, past, present and emerging.”
The imagery will be on display between 6pm to 8pm, Monday to Friday, 5 to 9 July 2021 (weather permitting).
