Wiluna and the Sport & Recreation Centre
A varied working life eventually led me to the position of Manager of an Indigenous Art Centre in the remote township of Wiluna, Western Australia where, over a period of five years, I enjoyed the challenges of the outback while mentoring the Birriliburu Artists and children in the development of their creative skills.
One of our projects was to give the Wiluna Sport & Recreation Centre a facelift. Working alongside the Artists, we chose the theme of The Canning Stock Route, land that is central to the Biriliburu Artists. The Artists each chose a particular section to paint, while I was called upon occasionally to deliver their design to areas beyond their reach.
