Living School

This artwork shows a character crying. This signifies that the character is letting go of their negative feelings towards the unjust past of First Nations people and revealing a reconciled future that lays in front. This relates to the theme of ‘What stories will you dream?’ because it signifies releasing the negative to reveals the joyful dreams for the future. I also used the word ‘TREATY’ as eyelashes to signify the Uluru Statement from the Heart, which is a very important part of moving towards our future.

Reconciliation means…

To ignore our differences and to rejoin as one group of people as we once were in the past.
