“Our children’s future, Our culture, Your culture”

Aboriginal art in Victoria is unique in its symbolism. It links with our stories and songlines like fingers reaching out to other areas of Australia. We encourage our children to express their creative minds to keep culture alive for the future. When I create something I express my cultural integrity in place, be respectful of interpretation of my culture, and try to share my story as a Taungwurrung Kulin (Aboriginal man from my traditional country).

“We are the first peoples of this land and have an ongoing responsibility to keep our culture alive and relevant into our current society. We belong to this land”.
