Participating Artists TBC
The artworks made for FLAGspace were created by the artists of the Ngala Nanga Mai pARenT Group – a participatory arts in health program established in 2009 and delivered by the Department of Community Child Health at the Sydney Children’s Hospitals Network (Randwick).
Every week, parents of Aboriginal children from La Perouse and surrounds, come together at the La Perouse Aboriginal Community Health Centre to connect through art making. This connecting supports our health and social, cultural and emotional wellbeing and that of our children. For this project we worked with guest artist Paula Do Prado experimenting with textiles, thread, wool, paint and oil pastels. The results from these experiments are presented here.
