So today, to celebrate our Australian Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander culture, I bring you some photos of street art I have taken (mainly) around Melbourne. Above is an Aboriginal "Spoonville" resident.
VACCHO (Victorian Aboriginal Community Controlled Health Organisation) in Sackville Street, Collingwood.
A banner that was outside Coburg Library last year.
Paintings at CERES, Brunswick.
Details of the Charcoal Lane mural. Handprints are a traditional way to say "we were here".
More details of the mural - I love the Aboriginal designs on the red flowers.
Hosier Lane in the CBD.
Victorian Aboriginal Health Service (VAHS) on Bell Street, Preston.
A moment in Aboriginal history on the VAHS building.
Above and Below: Artwork on the wall of Waurn Ponds Leisurelink Aquatic and Recreation Centre (ie the pool and gym). Not quite Melbourne but worth sharing!
Love the blue - I think this artwork is meant to signify coming together in water!
There might be arguement on copyright of the Aboriginal flag but you wont stop it appearing all over town. This hand crafted flag was seen by the Upfield Line.
Happy NAIDOC Week!
