To celebrate NAIDOC Week we have worked with the talented Jasmine MiikikaCraciun @kik_design_ to interpret this years theme.
Jasmin shares her inspiration behind the artwork:
" I wanted this artwork to feel like a collage of moments in Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander protest representative of the 2022 NAIDOC theme, Get up! Stand up! Show up!
The aim behind this design and art style was to celebrate the resilience and resistance of Aboriginal people in this country throughout our shared history.
The art-style was intentionally reminiscent of Indigenous protest posters from the 1970’s and 80’s. I love the vibrancy of these posters and also wanted to give a nod to this time period as my first introduction to protest and resistance was through my Mum, Aunties and Uncles who were a part of the movements happening during these time periods.
I want viewers to feel empowered, uplifted and proud. "
