'Our meeting place' is designed by Iteka Ukarla, a year 12 graduate mentee from our SA program in 2018. Iteka's interests are art, dance, print media and Aboriginal studies.

“Ikara is part of our Yurlu (the Kingfisher man) story and is where the Akurras (rainbow serpents) followed Yurlu to ceremony and eventually when they came to rest they created Ikara - Wilpena Pound.

It became an Adnyamathanha meeting place and other language groups also travelled there to participate in ceremony.

I think about this story when I am at AIME because students from different schools, and who are also from all different language groups, travel to meet together at AIME.”

The t-shirt features the Title and Artist name on the back right shoulder and the story of the artwork is printed on the inside.
