The earthy colours represent the sun reflecting on the outback dust, rising on a new day. The tree shows how we are growing together as one all working together, especially our Homegrown Heroes (strong branches) spreading the word for equality. On our road to understanding we are taking twists and turns promoting inclusion. The helping hands border the artwork as we come together like a family to raise awareness and keep growing into a stronger country. We didn’t paint any leaves on our tree because there is still work to be done, closing the gap to rights of both Indigenous and non-Indigenous Australians. The footprints represent our journey, walking together and helping one another. Many cultures in one land coming together, stepping towards our future together as one. Our artwork is expressing the past to the future known as ‘The Journey’.
