World Square is celebrating NAIDOC Week from 7-13 July!
Renowned Indigenous artist and three time Archibald finalist, Blak Douglas, has been commissioned to bring to life a NAIDOC Week vision in the Square Tuesday 9 July & Wednesday 10 July.
This live mural installation is in recognition of the NAIDOC Week 2019 mantra ‘Voice. Treaty. Truth.’ giving a voice to the Indigenous people of Australia.
CADI-GAL will create a familiar brand name in the World Square space;
“#CADI-GAL is designed at bringing further awareness of the traditional custodians land upon which we live, work & play. The aim is to create a faux ‘advertising board’, imagining that CADIGAL may one day become a brand name / commercial empire as culture evolves toward the future.“
– Blak Douglas
