Teen Art Workshop: For our Elders

Celebrate NAIDOC Week and 2023’s theme ‘For our Elders’ by getting creative with artists Jayda Wilson and Tikari Rigney.

This one day workshop delivered in two-parts explores how our Elders have influenced our identities and place in the world. We will acknowledge, pay respects, give and show appreciation for what they have done for family and community.

Hand write poetic love letters to the Elders in your life with Jayda, before transposing these words onto clay sculptures with Tikari.

This exclusive workshop is for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander young people and allies aged 12 to 17. We consider allies to be a close non-Aboriginal or Torres Strait Islander friend who supports us and we can’t live without. Up to one ally can be included in a booking along with an Aboriginal or Torres Strait Islander young person.

Registrations are limited to 20 places.

Please note: We encourage educators/parents/caregivers arrange for participants to be dropped off and and picked up.
