ac.care worked with Burrandies Aboriginal Corporation to incorporate Bunganditj language and artwork at the centre.
“We have welcomed opportunities to engage appropriately with Burrandies and install this bold artwork highlighting the deep connections that remain across this region for the Boandik people, beautifully illustrated by Bonnie-May,” Mr Wallace said.
Mount Gambier-based Boandik, Meintangk, Gunditjmara, Ngarrindjeri and Narrungga woman Ms Saunders said she was proud to see her work, My Home, displayed on the Mount Gambier Family Relationship Centre windows.
“My Home as it is represented in this piece is full of beautiful colours,” she said, explaining the combination of lush green land and extensive water.
“In the centre we have a symbol which represents people sitting and talking together, which emphasises we have a great facility here in Berrin with the Mount Gambier Family Relationship Centre, which keeps families connected and links them with supports,” she said.
“I hope that people look at my piece and remember the importance of culture, families and most of all being connected to Boandik Country.”
