NAIDOC Week Artwork

Ryhia Dank, a young Gudanji/Wakaja artist from the Northern Territory is the winner of the prestigious National NAIDOC poster competition for 2022 with her entry, Stronger.

“I created this piece after reading this year’s National NAIDOC Week theme – Get Up! Stand Up! Show Up! I knew straight away I wanted to do a graphic piece centred around our flags with text highlighting what we have been through and are still fighting for” said Ryhia. “I feel that this piece being black and white allows us to focus on the details and messages in the artwork”

Transport Canberra and Canberra Metro Operations are proud to display this year’s 2022 National NAIDOC week poster competition-winning poster on the side of a light rail vehicle.

With the artwork moving up and down the light rail line, on Ngunnawal Country, we hope to celebrate and amplify those who have and still are creating and leading change in our community.

We are proudly committed to Get Up! Stand Up! Show Up!
