Randwick City Council is promoting the annual Pauline McLeod Awards. They are also hosting this year’s event at our local La Perouse Museum from 20 July to the 2nd of August.
It is an art exhibition that features inspiring and thoughtful art from Sydney primary schools. The students explore the theme of “Our Living Cultures”.
So if you have a budding primary school artist on your hands maybe check it out on the Randwick City Council web site.
“Pauline Elizabeth McLeod was a proud Yatemetung-Ngarrindjeri woman and member of the Stolen Generations. Through her incredible work as a cultural educator, Pauline McLeod led and inspired Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples and non-Indigenous Australians towards better understanding, acceptance and healing. The Pauline McLeod Reconciliation Week Primary Schools Art Competition honours her legacy and is a significant Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander event recognising major work towards Reconciliation.” (Source Randwick City Council web site)
