St. Marys Anglican Girls School has been providing its students with opportunities to pursue personal and academic excellence in a respectful and supportive environment for over 100 years. BEVIN Creative was sought out by St. Marys’ dedicated Indigenous Support Co-ordinator, Julie Garnett.
With NAIDOC week celebrations falling between the 3 – 10 July in 2022, the Indigenous students group at St Mary’s were tasked with conceiving a t-shirt design for the NAIDOC events, through stories, hand drawn illustrations and colouring exercises. This t-shirt would be worn by the students not only at the NAIDOC Week celebrations, but also at functions throughout the year. Their designs were collated and reviewed by a community elder for accuracy. These designs were provided us, and requested to utilise the creative components and stories to bring to reality a T-shirt design which encapsulated their collective ideas and sketches.
