This NAIDOC week Mud Australia is delighted to launch the second APY Art Centre Collective collection of hand painted porcelain pieces.
2020 marked the beginning of Mud Australia’s partnership with APY Art Centre Collective, a group of 11 Indigenous owned and governed organisations that work with a united vision on strategic collaborative projects.
In celebration of NAIDOC Week 2021, Mud Australia has again partnered with APY Collective to expand on last year’s much sought-after collection – sold out within minutes of release. The new collection demonstrates an increasing confidence with the ceramic medium. Painted with some of the most sacred Tjukurpa (Dreaming Stories), the pieces are emotive and visually stunning.
Heal Country! is this year’s NAIDOC Week theme, calls for all of us to continue to seek greater protection for our lands, waters, sacred sites and cultural heritage from exploitation, desecration, and destruction. Find out more about NAIDOC 2021 here.
Our partnership endeavours to help bring work and industry to the remote communities of the APY lands. 80% of all sales go directly to the artists with 20% being reinvested into not-for-profit projects handled by the APY Art Centre Collective.
Mud Australia acknowledges we operate our studio on Gadigal country. We acknowledge the Gadigal people as the traditional custodians of the Eora Nation and pay our respects to Elders past, present and emerging.
We’re currently forming a Reflect RAP (Reconciliation Action Plan) to address how we can do more as a business.
