“The rainbow in this piece represents the many Ngurras (our clan groups) that form our community.”

This piece is a vibrant celebration of community and environmental stewardship. Through a kaleidoscope of colours, Jacinta Rai depicts the deep connection between the clan groups (Ngurras) and their shared responsibility towards waterways and marine life. The artwork, adorned with rainbows and deep blue circles, symbolizes unity in diversity, reflecting the lessons passed down through generations. It's a visual ode to the Worimi people's enduring relationship with both land and sea, advocating for a sustainable future that honours the gifts of Mother Earth.

We Are One

“We are One represents our First Nations people and the different mobs we come from all around Australia.”

Inspired by the AIATSIS Map of Indigenous Australia, "We Are One" is a powerful affirmation of the interconnectedness of Australia's First Nations people. Through this design, Jacinta Rai encapsulates the essence of unity amidst diversity, portraying how various mobs across the country strive to coexist harmoniously. The artwork is a tribute to the land— a constant in the lives of its traditional custodians and a foundation for living, loving, and learning. It's a reminder that, despite our differences, there's a shared journey towards unity, respect, and acknowledgment of the land's original stewards.


"Creation represents where we have been, where we are today and where we are going – Our past, present, and future."

This design takes us back to the beginning, where life emerges. "Creation" is characterized by a dynamic wave that symbolizes the source of all existence. Below this wave, the interplay of blues, greens, whites, creams, and peaches narrates the critical importance of water in nurturing life. This artwork connects communities, illustrating how collaboration and mutual support are vital for survival and prosperity. The rainbow serves as a bridge between the past, present, and future, carrying the legacy of the land and its people through time.
