Colour for reconciliation

Biripi/Bunjalung artist, Nikita Ridgeway, made the below symbol for National Reconciliation Week 2020. It’s called “Reconciliation, a ripple effect through education.”

Nikita created her design with colours from across Australia: purple and red for berries, brown and yellow for flowers and seeds, blues for our waters and rivers, ochres for ceremony and culture – amongst many others!

Click on the image below, download it and print it out. Then colour in her design with colours that you can see in the world around you. Show us your work and tell us what it means by sharing it on social media. Don’t forget to use #InThisTogether2020 and #NRW2020!
