ARCHIVED PROJECT

Gnarojin Creek Public Art

The Gnarojin Creek Public Art project comprised of a series of community arts projects that ran between 2010-2013, resulting in the installation of 4 public artworks in Gnarojin Creek. The finished pieces revitalised the public space, highlighting the significance of the creek’s walking trail held dearly by the local Aboriginal community in Narrogin.

The project's 4 phases each connected professional artists with community participants in order to work together on the design, construction and installation of a unique public art piece.

Each piece embodying a significant part of Noongar culture, the finished works consisted of: The Rainbow Serpent, a 3m tall concrete sculpture reminiscent of a Noongar shield, seed pod and flame; Boomerang Seats, 3 boomerang-shaped seats each depicting the 6 Noongar seasons; Narrogin Poles, culturally inspired paintings and carvings on a series of poles that were originally installed in 1993-1994; and The Charrnock Woman, beautiful mosaic works placed on natural rock formations that tell the story of 'The Charrnock Woman' from the Dreamtime.
