NAIDOC Week 2022

To commemorate NAIDOC Week 2022, Mt Ommaney Centre and Retail First Shopping Centres are proudly featuring artwork from local Indigenous artist, Zowie.

Zowie is a self-taught contemporary Aboriginal artist from the Kombumerri and Butchulla tribes. Her work represents both her Mother’s clan and Father’s clan. Her artistic style combines that of the past and present to connect viewers with open dialogue in relation to the history and future of Australia’s First Nation’s People.

This year’s theme – Get up! Stand up! Show up! – encourages all Australians to champion institutional, structural, collaborative, and cooperative change while celebrating those who have already driven and led change in Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander communities over generations.

You can view Zowie’s artwork on posters and signage throughout the centre.

Mt Ommaney Centre would like to acknowledge the Traditional Custodians of this land on which we gather. We pay our respects to Aboriginal and Torres Strait Island Elders for guiding us in the past, walking with us in the present, and for leading us into the future. We recognise the leaders of change in our communities over generations, and support narrowing the gap between good intent and outcome.
