Reconciliation Week art takes to the streets

Seventeen local governments and 125 sponsoring organisations are helping spread the Reconciliation Week message across Western Australia.

The Reconciliation Week Street Banner Project is promoting the message of Grounded in Truth, Walk Together with Courage which will be displayed on 417 banners in prominent locations.

In 2019, the banners feature the eye-catching work of Valmayi Nampitjinpa, an artist based at Tjarlirli Art Centre in the Ngaanyatjarra Lands of the Western Desert, about 350 kilometres north-east of Warburton.

The banners will be displayed at Elizabeth Quay; and the local government areas of Armadale, Bassendean, Broome, Bunbury, Cockburn, Gosnells, Greater Geraldton, Kalamunda, Kalgoorlie-Boulder, Mandurah, Perth, Rockingham, South Perth, Subiaco, Swan, Victoria Park and Vincent.

The project is organised by the Department of Local Government, Sport and Cultural Industries.

Reconciliation Week runs from today (May 27 2019) to June 3, 2019.
