Indigenous artwork during NAIDOC week

During NAIDOC Week and throughout July we are proud to exhibit beautiful artwork of contemporary First Nations artists in light box galleries across Knox, as part of the Immerse arts and culture event. Various artists have shared their perspectives on Country, Culture and Connection. We invite you to explore this inspiring cultural experience and meet our artists below.  

JESWRI’s (Jesse Wright) artwork can be viewed at Horologist Lane Light Box Gallery in Ferntree Gully. Jeswri is a Gadigal artist his unique blend of pop-culture and signature ‘retro-futurism’ has established him as a household name in the National Street Art scene.

Molly Hunt’s artwork is located at Paloma Lane Light Box Gallery, Wantirna South. Molly is a proud Balanaggarra and Yolngu woman. Growing up in Wyndham, Western Australia alongside creative parents, Molly uniquely captures stories through her work, and use of colour. 

Charlotte Allingham’s artwork is displayed at Cinema Lane Light Box Gallery in Boronia. Charlotte is a Wiradjuri and Ngiyampaa Queer woman from Central West NSW, living in Naarm (Melbourne). A multidisciplinary artist focusing on Blak excellence, Charlotte uses symbolic and figurative representations of self-determination and truth throughout her work. She continues to challenge the perception of her people through creative expression.

NAIDOC Week (7 to 14 July) honours and recognises the history, culture and achievements of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples. This year's theme celebrates the unyielding spirit of our communities and invites all to stand in solidarity, amplifying the voices that have long been silenced.

Council supports and celebrates NAIDOC week as part of The Knox Reconciliation Action Plan (RAP). This plan formalises our commitment to take meaningful action to advance reconciliation and truth-telling in Knox.

This includes actions focusing on six key areas -recognition and respect, cultural heritage, health and wellbeing, civic participation, employment and economic development, voice and governance. For more information.
