NAIDOC Week 2022

 

To commemorate NAIDOC Week 2022, Booval Fair in association with Retail First is honoured to have collaborated with local Indigenous, female artist Zowie, from the Kombumerri tribe and Butchulla tribe to create a beautiful artwork that encapsulated this year’s theme ‘Get Up! Stand Up! Show Up!’

Zowie is a self-taught contemporary Aboriginal artist. Her art combines both traditional and modern mediums effortlessly, to create pieces that a truly alluring to the eye. The young, artist and mother, has creatively expressed herself through art her entire life. However, after raising her own family she has been brought closer to her ancestors, origins and connection to the land.

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.

National NAIDOC Week celebrations are held across Australia in the first week of July each year (Sunday to Sunday), to celebrate and recognise the history, culture and achievements of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples. NAIDOC Week is an opportunity for all Australians to learn about First Nations cultures and histories and participate in celebrations of the oldest, continuous living cultures on earth.

Zowie’s beautiful artwork will be displayed outside of Woolworths.
