NAIDOC Week 2022: Get Up! Stand Up! Show Up!

#Get Up! Stand Up! Show Up!

NAIDOC Week 2022 will be held from Sunday 3 to Sunday 10 July and is an opportunity for all Australians to come together to celebrate the rich history, diverse cultures and achievements of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples.

The NAIDOC 2022 theme – Get Up! Stand Up! Show Up! - invites the nation to rally for systemic change and support institutional, structural, collaborative and cooperative reforms. It emphasises that beyond acknowledgment and good intentions, the relationship between Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples and non‑Indigenous Australians needs to be based on justice, equity, and the proper recognition of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples’ rights.

Meet the artist: Grace Brown

Grace is the youngest daughter of three children and was born in Ferntree Gully in Victoria. She has painted and created in different media and forms for most of her life achieving qualifications in the fine arts and interior design industry.
A very innovative mid-career artist, she began painting at a very young age and was mentored by her mother and grandmother. Together they taught her the methodology of using details and tiny shimmering dots to create complex optical effects to tell the stories about her culture.

Over the years, Grace further developed her skills as an artist to become an extraordinarily talented colourist and designer, experimenting with elements of line, colour and form, realism, silhouette and traditional dot art to create her beautiful lace like paintings.

At the simplest level, her bush wildflowers represent the bush land and bush seeds scattered across our beautiful country. Other themes in Grace’s paintings are the Victorian and Australian native animals and birds, which feature in many of her artworks.
She is a proud Wurundjeri woman who is proud to represent her community and her Aboriginal culture.

View Grace Brown's artwork 'Coming Home' on display at Westfield Doncaster from 4 July
