Woorabinda Mural WorkshopsMurals / Workshops & Training
Woorabinda is a remote Community a few hours south west of Rockhampton. Human Creative were engaged by the Woorabinda Aboriginal Shire Council to run a series of workshops with young people in late April 2014. Human worked closely on the design and execution of a large mural with traditional owners, council, local artists and young people on community service orders.
Woorabinda had some trouble with vandalism and graffiti on public and private property. The intention of the project was to engage young people and the broader community in a public art piece to help change perceptions around street art, create a positive example and teach valuable skills for artists to continue to contribute art in the community. The workshops were a great success, over 30 participants attended each workshop and the feedback from the community has been overwhelmingly positive.
