When you think about lanyards, you think about cords that carry identification cards for work or for school, which are hung around the neck. This is the primary use of the lanyard as we know it today. There are however other uses for the lanyard, apart from carrying your school, work ID, key holders, pen holders, phone holders, compass holders or even an emergency tool kit.
STORY BEHIND THE ART
Yaliwunga Nguwa (Always Here)
This artwork represents the NADIOC theme, "Always Was, Always Will Be" through our ongoing connection to this country, our Mother Earth. We have been here for 65,000+ years. We have survived through environmental change, through colonisation and the continual impacts of both because we hold the knowledge of how to care for country, with her in turn caring for us. Country is central to our being, our reason and our life source. We have a fundamental role in ensuring her voice is heard, her needs are met and to ensure she stays healthy for our children's futures by treading lightly and fighting for her. The pathways symbolise sharing her voice across the land, whilst the meeting place depicts coming together, listening, learning, taking action and acknowledging the knowledge, cultures, and longstanding custodianship and connection to the country of First Nations People.
