THE SACREDNESS OF WATER LIVE MURAL PROJECT
Location: Cleveland Library wall, Middle Street, Cleveland (opposite Redland Art Gallery)
The 2017 Quandamooka Live Mural Project features Quandamooka artists Sandra and Shara Delaney, mentored by experienced large scale mural artists Deb Mostert and Matthew Newkirk.
The 2017 Quandamooka Festival theme of ‘sea country’ aligns with the 2017 NAIDOC theme – Our Languages Matter. The mural responds to these themes and incorporates both imagery and text that recognises the dual naming approach often adopted within our region, in particular, aspects of local Jandai language. The aim was to devise and create a coherent mural which depicts the sacredness of water through both imagery and text that derives from sea country in Quandamooka/Redland.
The Live Mural Project is a QYAC initiative partnered by Redland City Council as part of Creative Arts Redlands’ Public Art Program.
