A unique piece of indigenous public art was unveiled last Thursday on the exterior of YMCA House in Lyttleton Terrace.

A smoking ceremony and welcome to country by the Dja Dja Wurrung took place as part of the unveiling.

The mural created by artist Troy Firebrace also features designs from members of the Bendigo District Aboriginal Cooperative Youth Group. 

City of Greater Bendigo council’s Steve Abbott said as part of the project artist Troy Firebrace held a workshop to assist the members of the youth group with their designs for the mural.

“The workshop and mural were part of the council’s Youth Engagement Project. The mural is a fantastic new piece of public art for Bendigo by members of the local indigenous community and the city is pleased to have supported this important project,” Mr Abbott said.

“We would like to thank the YMCA for their support in providing the wall for the mural.”
