After a successful round of art workshops in metro Adelaide and surrounds, the Nunga Oog team have packed up their art supplies and hit the road to regional South Australia.
Our first stop was Port Pirie last week. We met with four fantastic young people who attended the workshop and contributed to the design of Nunga Oog. The young people said they enjoyed the workshop as well as learning how to tell their story through art. They were also treated to Aboriginal artist David Booth playing the yidaki (didgeridoo) for them.
Over the next five months we will continue our regional workshops, with the Riverland next on the list, in July. This will be followed by Pt Augusta (August), Mt Gambier (September), Ceduna (September), Port Lincoln (October) and Coober Pedy (November).
Aboriginal children and young people aged 13-18 years who are in care and living in these regions are invited to join us, along with an Aboriginal artist, to help bring Nunga Oog to life. It’s a great opportunity for them to leave their mark on our new safety symbol, learn some new art skills, chat with our team, and have a free feed!
Please share this video with the young people so they can find out more about the workshops.
