‘Umbakumba One People One Voice Festival’, Groote Eylandt, Northern Territory

I was very fortunate to be able to accompany my husband James Dodd on a remote NT adventure at the end of August as his assistant on a community mural project for the ‘Umbakumba One People One Voice Festival’. As part of this project Jimmy conducted stencil making workshops with school students who then joined us during the festival to create a large wall mural. Having never worked on an art project in a remote community before this was an incredibly rewarding, challenging and fun experience and I cannot wait to engage in similar projects in the future.
