Our beautiful artwork, titled 'Pathway to Unity,' was created by Kyralee Shields. Kyralee is a proud Darug and Darkinjung woman who expresses her connection to her culture through her art. Her artwork reflects her culture, heritage, tradition and strong connection to the land and her people. She tries to capture the beautiful, ancient traditions and the hurt and damage from the past in all she creates. Her modern, contemporary artwork aims to represent and applaud her strong female ancestors while honouring traditional art forms.
Kyralee says about the artwork:
"The left circle is BaptistCare, the right circle is First Nations people and the central circle represents both coming together. Songlines behind the three circles represent the story of reconciliation. Stars represent dreams for change on the journey to reconciliation."
