How does your work engage with the theme ‘The World at Home’?

Uluru is, a powerful embodiment of the ‘Statement of Heart’ and the hope for Makarrata; meaning a coming together after a struggle, facing the facts of wrongs and living again in peace (Yolngu language). For all Australians to truly call this HOME I believe we first need to recognise the first sovereign nations of Australia in the form of the treaty created by the Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander tribes. It is time for truth-telling about our history.
