Indigenous Artwork Presented to Chamber

Indigenous Artwork Presented to Chamber


Recent visitors to our Chamber may have noticed a fabulous new artwork proudly displayed in our main conference room. The title of this painting is Dabakarn Koorliny, which means “Walk Slowly” in Noongar [1]. The message embedded in this painting is deeply symbolic, as expressed by the words of its artist Acacia Collard:


“This art piece presented to Western Australia Chinese Chamber of Commerce to represent the time spent on Whadjuk country and the friendships established.


The design shows 32 main circles which represent WACCC’s 32 years in Western Australia. All circles are connected by pathways which represents the connection between the years and how far WACCC has come. The pathway also leads into the lettering (WACCC’s logo) in the centre.


The artwork shows the long journey that has been travelled and the space for growth into the future.”


The painting was generously presented as a gift to our Chamber by its artist Acacia Collard. Acacia is a young Badimia Yamatji – Balladong Noongar woman who specialises in contemporary Aboriginal artworks and designs. Her work includes canvas painting, rock art, sand murals and other specialty masterpieces.


WACCC Vice President Cheong Chew and his colleague at Downer Mining, Bevan Whitby, initiated discussions with Acacia which led to the commissioning of this artwork.
