Community Art | City of Casey NAIDOC Week July 2014 Exhibition

Proudly sponsored by City of Casey and City of Greater Dandenong, the NAIDOC Week Exhibition, now in it’s 3rd year and the Winter Arts Festival are a celebration of not only creativity but also leadership and teamwork produced by the Koorie Youth Group and facilitated by Kez Knight.  With the theme of “My Story – Our Future”, the Koorie Youth Group has once again created some beautiful artwork with an empowering message.  The artwork is on display at the June 2014 City of Casey Winter Arts Festival, held at Haileybury College, Berwick and the July 2014 NAIDOC week Exhibition, will be held at Heritage Hill, Dandenong from 28th June to 27th July 2014.  The Koorie Youth Group members aged from 5 up have worked together on a series of large collages, wall hangings, individual paintings and skateboard decks incorporating Victorian Indigenous language to tell their story to become the exhibition’s theme “My Story” as told by the Youth who are tomorrows leaders to create “Our Future”.  Below are some photos of the journey of the workshops and exhibitions
