NAIDOC Week brings Care for Country to KL
Celebrate NAIDOC Week’s ‘Heal Country’ theme at home this year by taking part in the NAIDOC Week 2021 colouring competition.
Open to the young and young at heart, this mindfulness activity is based on the beautiful artwork featured on the 2021 National NAIDOC poster, ‘Care for Country’, by Gubbi Gubbi artist Maggie-Jean Douglas.
The artwork explores how Country has cared for and healed First Nations people spiritually, physically, emotionally, socially and culturally. It includes communities, people, animals and bush medicines spread over different landscapes of red dirt, green grass, bush land and coastal areas to tell the story of the many ways Country can and has healed us throughout our lives and journeys.
We encourage artistic expression, so submissions will be judged by use of colour and creativity. The top four artworks by adults and top four by children will be published on the AHC’s Instagram and Facebook as part of the NAIDOC Week celebration.
