‘We gather and share bush foods’
Detail from ceramic frieze. This panel made by Anne Gumurdul
In 2013 Janie worked with Corrugated Iron Youth Arts, Darwin to be Artist in Resident at the Child and Family Centre in Gunbalanya, N.T. This was a 3 way project between the Family Centre, the Art Centre and the School. This detail from the ceramic frieze was one of several panels originally designed by women at the family centre for a recently launched baby board book titled ‘Duwa and Yirridjdja , Growing Up Culture Way’. The ceramic frieze became a permanent 3D version of the book for children to interact with in crèche area.
