The Mornington Peninsula Shire / NBN Co Aboriginal Art Node Project is a partnership to cover sixteen NBN node cabinets across thirteen townships with Aboriginal art wraps from 6 local Aboriginal groups/organisations including Bunurong Land Council, Balee Group, Baluk Arts, Bunjilwarra, Living Culture and Willum Warrain.
This project aims to support and increase awareness of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander groups and organisations on the Mornington Peninsula and celebrate a sense of place and the importance of storytelling through art.
This is the first project that has involved all of the Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander organisations on the Mornington Peninsula in partnership with Mornington Peninsula Shire, NBN Co and the Registered Aboriginal Party that represents the Traditional Owners of the area, the Bunurong Land Council Aboriginal Corporation.
The sixteen artworks show us new ways to connect. We find meaning in their stories, the communities they represent or the place they rest. Meaning gives art energy and momentum to inspire and showcase our people, their stories and our unique environment.
