An art trail with a focus on celebrating the resilience and vast cultural heritage of the Bunurong and Wurundjeri Woi-Wurrung Peoples of the Kulin Nations is set to feature alongside the winding Dandenong Creek. This project will engage Traditional Owners and Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander artists to create seven place-based public artworks along the Dandenong Creek Trail, which together will form the 'Dandenong Creek Arts Trail'.
The project will celebrate Traditional Custodians enduring connection and respect for the land and waters of the Dandenong Creek.
The art trail will feature up to seven locations, along 22km of the Dandenong Creek Trail between Heathmont and Dandenong. This project is a collaboration between our neighbouring municipalities, including Casey, Monash, Whitehorse, Knox and Maroondah Councils.
Titled 'Spreading the Message', Ian Harrison’s artwork is located at Tirhatuan Park along the Dandenong Creek Trail.
