OUR ART

Artists from the Coomaditchie Co-operative are some of the premier Aboriginal artists in the Illawarra region. Their art captures the spirit, colours and stories of their cultural heritage as coastal people.

 

Coomaditchie artists use art as a tool of engagement to share stories and help the community to learn about culture

 

To learn more about the symbols used by Coomaditchie artists in their paintings view the glossary of symbols.

 

Research shows that when people participate in art-making they are likely to form new friendships, find new ways of expressing their own story and develop a sense of belonging to a community.

 

Coomaditchie artists work collaboratively with community groups, schools, and university students to create art using murals, mosaics and public artworks.

PUBLIC ART

 

"The presence of Aboriginal art in public spaces builds appreciation of Aboriginal culture and heritage in the place where it is installed, helping to keep East Coast Aboriginal culture alive. It creates a different layer of meaning for non-Aboriginal people, educating them about the Aboriginal significance of an area in an exciting and challenging way."
