Moorditj Mural Masters Opening

The Valuing Children Initiative had the honour of supporting Propel Youth Arts and the City of Vincent to host the Moorditj Mural Masters as part of this year’s Youth Week WA KickstART Festival.

The mentorship, for young Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander artists aged 16 years and over, covered all the steps of designing, creating and painting murals in public places.

The workshop was run by Whadjuk/Ballardong Noongar and Eastern Arrente artist Jade Dolman, who shared her extensive experience in painting murals in spaces as varied as government buildings, public transport hubs, bookshops and many more.

Over three days, Jade took participants through the process of working with stakeholders, designing a mural and painting in public places.

The incredible array of work will remain on display for many years to come at Little Parry Street, Perth in the laneway next to Kuditj.
