The launch of ‘Keys To Our Country’ was a moving and happy event. Den Fisher presided with a smoking ceremony that gave the event gravitas – it drew people in to the meaning of the project – all Australians celebrating aboriginal heritage and being part of that culture.
Den’s portrait was unveiled and the project explained to the group assembled. It was very encouraging to hear the comments of support and well wishing. All present were encouraged to sign up to the Keys to Our Country website in order to get updates as each portrait is done. Each update will explain the work of that individual and help us all learn more and be able to create meaningful conversations around the strengths of Aboriginal culture.
We all shared lemon myrtle muffins and tea and those congregated took away a Celia Moriarty Art 2018 calendar.
