Mother Tongue – Dr Vicki Couzens Public Artwork Opening

May 28 @ 11:00 am - 12:00 pm AEST

As part of National Reconciliation Week, join us for the launch of a new public artwork ‘Mother Tongue’ led by Dr Vicki Couzens.

Bunurong Land Council Aboriginal Corporation will be doing a Smoking Ceremony, there will be speeches by the artistic team and delicious food by Pawa Catering.

Gunditjmara artist Dr Vicki Couzens was appointed as the lead artist on the Mother Language Public Art Project in July 2021. Since then she collaborated with local artists from the Bunurong, African Diaspora, Bangla, Chin, Karen, Karenni, Maori, Indian and Sikh communities to create a new public artwork ‘Voice of the Land, Voice of the People, Voice of our Heart, Voice of Mother – Mother Tongue’.

Couzens has been working to incorporate key visual elements from each culture into the final artwork.
