Banah Belong explores place, belonging, and identity in celebration of NAIDOC Week 2021 ((Sunday 4 July to Sunday 11 July)
This digital artwork is an extension of a mural created by students from Denison College, Kelso High Campus in June 2021.
Participants worked with street artist Sven to identify words, role models, and motifs that form the basis for stencils overlayed on to giant letters spelling the words BANAH (Wiradjuri for ‘truly’) and BELONG, creating a powerful, positive message for the community.
Banah Belong is a partnership project between the Bathurst Local Aboriginal Land Council, Bathurst Regional Council, and Denison College, Kelso High Campus.This project is part of Museums & Galleries of NSW’s Lets Get Digital initiative, proudly supported by the NSW Government though Create NSW as part of Arts Restart, and the NSW Government’s Stronger Country Communities Fund.
