Together, our dynamic team brought a live screen printing workshop on site at the
Rirratjingu Aboriginal Corporation (RAC) community centre, bridging our worlds of art and creativity with the local community. At the heart of the workshop were bright young artists, ranging in ages from 8 to 12 with participation of some as young as 5, creating their own hand-drawn designs and prepping them for the screens. With Junior, Dylan and others it was all hands on deck, sharing techniques and working alongside the budding creatives.
From this, a series of incredible collaborative prints emerged—designs born from the imagination and transferred onto 150 t-shirts. What made the experience even more special was the beautiful blend of generations present in the workshop as
children, their grandparents, and community members of all ages joined together.
We thank Rirratjingu Aboriginal Corporation (RAC) and House of Darwin for the opportunity to run this workshop, connect with community, and help spotlight and foster the talented youth in Yirrkala.
