its 10th year, 122 organisations have sponsored more than 310 banners through
Banner Project, across the Perth CBD and 17 local government areas.
This year's banner features stunning
artwork by Aboriginal artist Tee Jay (Thomas) Worrigal.
Now living in Perth, Tee Jay was born
in Derby and raised at Yiyili on Gooniyandi country. He was taught to
paint by many family elders, and now views the creation of his art as an
important way to pass on knowledge and continue cultural tradition.
His artwork references the burning of
country, rebirth, regrowth and beauty, and was exhibited at the 2019 Revealed:
Emerging Aboriginal Artist exhibition.
National Reconciliation Week is
celebrated across Australia every year from 27 May to 3 June.
This year's reconciliation message is
'More than a word. Reconciliation takes action', urging the reconciliation
movement towards braver and more impactful action.
The department co-ordinates the
Street Banner Project, partnering with local councils and sponsors to display
the banners in prominent locations across WA.
