Burbangana Artwork by Kristina McKinlay, a Yuwaalaraay and Ngarrabul woman
Burbangana is a word from the Sydney Language which means ‘take hold of my hand and help me up’. The Burbangana Group’s vision is ‘Working together for community wellbeing’. The company’s name and vision both inspired the artwork.
The commitment to community wellbeing is shown through the use of circles which indicate connection between communities, cultures and create a sense of being held and care.
The hands represent the eight Australian States and Territories. The different patterns and colours of the hands draw on the diversity of the Burbangana Group and the people, communities and organisations from all over Australia that we work with.
