1000 Voices

In collaboration with the Department of Education Tasmania and Tagari Lia Aboriginal Child and Family centre, I designed and illustrated an A4 booklet sharing the first 250 voices of 1000 in their community in Bridgewater.

1000 Voices aims to share the strengths in the community, what the community dreams for, barriers and how to overcome these barriers. 

The design is focused on the beautiful composition and form of the Tasmanian maireener shell necklace, a significant cultural artefact for Tasmanian Aboriginal history. The necklace symbolises the connection and collection of voices within the book, delicately curving and winding its way throughout the pages from beginning to end.
