Drawing Us Together - 2023 Winners
celebrate NAIDOC Week 2023, we partnered with author Bianca Stawiarski, and our
local schools to create a community story book. Bianca Stawiarski is a Badimaya
Badimia and Ukrainian woman from South Australia, Bianca is a coach, speaker,
lecturer, best-selling and international author.
story ‘Gami Winda and Dyindi Dyndi’, is based on the 2023 NAIDOC Message ‘For
Our Elders’, focusing on listening and connecting to country and discovering
the stories of your elders.
Throughout the July School Holidays, we invited you, our much-loved Campbelltown community, to have your say and vote on your favourite of 70 illustrations created by local student artists to be featured in the community storybook. We received overwhelming support with 350 votes over the two-week period and thank all the talented student artists who contributed illustrations.
