Official Artwork

The official IAC Artwork represents our organisation as a whole, interconnected by different elements, programs, people, and community. These elements work together towards a common goal: to improve the lives of Aboriginal people in the Illawarra region.

The Artwork is painted by two local Aboriginal artists, Kanisha Storer and Zhali West, who won our Artwork competition in 2018. The digital version of the artwork is produced by Charmaine Mumbulla, from Mumbulla Creative.
