'Many Hands' makes an imprint

​Many hands from many cultural backgrounds have helped to create the ‘Many Hands’ mural at Canterbury-Bankstown Arts Centre.

The wall, which was designed and produced by local Indigenous artist, Jason Wing, was commissioned by Council for Naidoc Week and be on display for the next four months.
“I’m always thinking about ways to promote aboriginal art and culture,” Mr Wing said.
“In my opinion, there is a lack of visual presence and representation of aboriginal culture and other minority groups, so this was a great opportunity to start changing that.”
Mr Wing opted for hands to represent the strong symbolic link to Aboriginal history and art.
“I wanted a lot of people involved in the artwork, so I held a series of workshops for children, where they all took a turn at putting their own hand print on the wall,” Mr Wing said.
Handprint by handprint, Mr Wing’s vision came alive.
“I’m constantly inspired by social justice for Aboriginal people and educating the general public about the current issues Indigenous people face, and I feel this project let me do that really well in an engaging and informative way,” Mr Wing said.
“It was empowering to see children engage with this project and see them understand the importance of continuing not only Aboriginal culture and heritage, but also their own through art.”
Mr Wing commended Council for enabling artists, like himself, to share their knowledge and skill in an innovative way on the Arts Centre ‘Imagine Wall’.
“The Imagine Wall is a blank canvas to express yourself,” Mr Wing said.
“I’m honoured that I was asked back to paint on the wall again.”
Mr Wing transformed the wall last year, which depicted an historical timeline of the Indigenous people who lived along the Georges River.
Artists interested in exhibiting temporary art works on the Imagine Wall, can contact the Arts Centre Director on 9707 9989 or email artscentre@cbcity.nsw.gov.au
The ‘Many Hands’ mural will be featured at the Arts Centre until 31 October.
