Exploring Indigenous Cultures: A Unique Art Exhibition During NAIDOC Week in Knox

During NAIDOC Week and throughout July, the City of Knox proudly presents the “Immerse” art exhibition, showcasing contemporary artwork by Indigenous artists in light box galleries across the city. Various artists share their perspectives on Country, Culture, and Connection, providing an inspiring cultural experience.

JESWRI’s (Jesse Wright) artwork can be viewed at the Horologist Lane Light Box Gallery in Ferntree Gully. Jeswri is a Gadigal artist whose unique blend of pop culture and signature ‘retro-futurism’ has made him a household name in the National Street Art scene.

Molly Hunt’s artwork is located at the Paloma Lane Light Box Gallery in Wantirna South. Molly is a proud Balanaggarra and Yolngu woman. Growing up in Wyndham, Western Australia alongside creative parents, Molly uniquely captures stories through her use of color.

Charlotte Allingham’s artwork is displayed at the Cinema Lane Light Box Gallery in Boronia. Charlotte is a Wiradjuri and Ngiyampaa Queer woman from Central West NSW, living in Melbourne. A multidisciplinary artist focusing on Blak excellence, Charlotte uses symbolic and figurative representations of self-determination and truth throughout her work, continually challenging perceptions of her people through creative expression.

NAIDOC Week (7 to 14 July) honors and recognizes the history, culture, and achievements of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples. This year’s theme celebrates the unyielding spirit of our communities and invites everyone to stand in solidarity, amplifying the voices that have long been silenced.

The council supports and celebrates NAIDOC Week as part of the Knox Reconciliation Action Plan (RAP). This plan formalizes our commitment to take meaningful action to advance reconciliation and truth-telling in Knox.

The plan includes actions focusing on six key areas: recognition and respect, cultural heritage, health and wellbeing, civic participation, employment and economic development, and voice and governance.
