Wanju Nyungar Boodja (Welcome to Country) Mural Project 2019
About the Project
We are very excited to be launching a very special new project this week – the Wanju Nyungar Boodja (Welcome to Country) mural project – supported by the Regional Arts Fund and the Indigenous Languages and Arts Program. We are also very grateful for the support provided by our local community partners – Horizon Power, Bunnings, Dulux, Leighton Haslam and the Shire of Esperance.
This project is presented in partnership with Esperance Tjaltjraak Native Title Aboriginal Corporation, Seawater Families and Escare Incorporated. It will involve there murals created by professional mural artist Matt Adnate, three local Nyungar artists, and many other community members.
Look out for information about upcoming community workshops starting this weekend and follow the progress of the murals on Facebook & Instagram! If you are travelling past 54 The Esplanade you might even get to see the artists in action!
