Reconciliation Week is celebrated annually from 27 May to 3 June and recognises the importance of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander histories, cultures and achievements. The Street Banner Project displays hundreds of banners, sponsored by organisations, in prominent locations across Western Australia.

This year DLGSC is excited to partner with Reconciliation WA to deliver the project with the support of a growing number of organisations and local governments. This positive contribution towards reconciliation provides your organisation or business the opportunity to acknowledge the significant place of Aboriginal people and culture within our community.

Beverley Rogers is an artist working with the Martumili Artists team. She lives and works in Punmu Community. Martumili Artists was established by Martu people in late 2006 and supports Martu artists in Kunawarritji, Punmu, Parnngurr, Jigalong, Warralong, Irrungadji (Nullagine) and Parnpajinya (Newman). Their works reflect the dramatic geography and scale of their homelands in the Great Sandy Desert and Rudall River regions of Western Australia. Martumili Artists represents speakers of Manyjilyjarra, Warnman, Kartujarra, Putijarra and Martu Wangka languages, many of whom experienced first contact with Europeans in the 1960s. The artists include painters, weavers and sculptors. Martu artists proudly maintain their creative practices whilst pursuing social and cultural obligations across the Martu homelands.
