Members, Sponsors & Guests,
NAIDOC week celebrations are held across Australia each July to celebrate the history, culture and achievements of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples.
Local Artist Shara who created this wonderful design (Image on invitation) will be kindly donating this large print herself by form of raffle to all attendees.
This artwork represents this year’s 2021 NAIDOC theme Heal Country, which highlights the important relationship between Aboriginal and Torres Strait Island people with the land and sea. It’s all a part of our wellbeing, culture, and identity. In the design I wanted to showcase the community of the Redlands. The main circle represents the Redlands United Football Club, the players, members, and supporters. It brings everyone together, which I created pathways leading into the middle.
Shara Delaney is the artist behind the artwork who is a Traditional Custodian from Quandamooka Country, also known as Moreton Bay. The Redlands is a very significant part of Quandamooka. Her artwork is inspired by elements of the land and sea with the dots and the lines in the background. Heal Country also calls for greater protections in land and sea management in sustainable practices. If we can come together and listen to one another on these discussions for the benefit of future generations for all. Title 'Community'
The main game for this event is Redlands United v Eastern Suburbs at 6pm, with an exciting build-up of Senior games starting at 1.45pm for Under 18s and 3.45pm for Under 23s.
NAIDOC week is an opportunity for all Australians to come together to celebrate the rich history, diverse cultures and achievements of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples as the oldest continuing cultures on the planet. Please make this a family event, come along to and celebrate together. C'Mon You Reds!!!!
