On the tenth anniversary of the national apology, Busselton’s Undalup Association will hold an event to celebrate the strength of Aboriginal and non-Indigenous cultures working together to address inter-generational trauma.
Artwork created by members of the stolen generation from the Wandering Mission will be on display at a healing event along with photos and documents which have rarely been seen.
Undalup board member Sandra Hill, also from the stolen generation, will host and present the event which will include a special appearance from Charlie ‘Jdudin’ Riley’s art mobile.
Riley is a Noongar artist who now lives in Busselton. He transformed a Ford Falcoln into a unique work of art taking two years to complete and is usually on display at the Bunbury Regional Art Gallery.
The event, ‘Heal our past, build our future,’ will be held at the Youth and Community Centre, 47 Bussell Highway, Busselton from 10am to 2pm on Saturday, February 24.
Residents from the stolen generational living in the South West who have not had a chance to see the photos or documents from the mission may be interested in attending the Undalup healing and apology event.
The event is supported by the Healing Foundation.
