The recently completed mural along the wall between Pemulwuy Park and Redfern railway can only be described as 'community owned'. Although Council-funded and sponsored, the mural began with the establishment of a working party which included representatives of Council, Aboriginal elders, organisations and other residents. The working party consulted widely, selected the artists and developed the design brief.
The mural was designed by Danny Eastwood [NAIDOC Aboriginal Artist of the Year in 1993] and local artist James Simon. Local residents contributed significantly to the final product, which is now a source of pride not only for the Aboriginal community but all of South Sydney.
