Dana Djirrungana Dunguludja Yenbena-l (Proud, Strong Aboriginal People) Aboriginal Street Art Project is a finalist in the Local Government category of this year’s HART Awards.
The project features a series of murals throughout Shepparton’s central business district, which are dedicated to celebrating and recognising the local Aboriginal people and the Aboriginal culture and history within the region.
The HART Awards are presented by Reconciliation Victoria, in partnership with Victorian Local Governance Association and supported by Bank Australia and Local Government Victoria.
The awards recognise Victorian initiatives contributing to local reconciliation outcomes.
Greater Shepparton City Council is preparing for stage three of the project.
The HART Awards will be presented at an event in Melbourne on Friday, June 1, during National Reconciliation Week.
