I made “Let Us Grow” based off of the land the Indigenous people took care of. I drew the river to resemble Australia washing off the negativity, severe cruelty and ignorance we carried for too long. I drew the plants to shelter us and the animals from any hatred and to show that together, like the plants we can grow. We can grow, learn and educate others. I hope my artwork can raise awareness and contribute to reconciliation.
Reconciliation means… Reconciliation means to acknowledge the past and Australia’s wrong doings. To turn over a new chapter in Australia’s history and make amends. To learn, educate and grow together.
