The artwork on the Serika hat, titled ‘Forever’, is by Serika Shillingsworth, an AIME mentee in the University of Sydney program.
“My artwork depicts the ongoing connection between the Brewarrina fish traps and I. This is unbreakable for I feel an obligation to visit and take part in cultural practices surrounding the sacred site. Baimae’s Ngunnhu is the central meeting place for tribes along the Darling River. This is where the people conducted ceremonial practices and as a chance for elders to resolve disputes and trade goods.”
