This is a picture of the amazing artwork by Narelle Urquhart, which will be used for the First Nations Youth Summit merchandise (shirts, water bottles, etc.). It shows the traditional land of Aboriginal and the Torres Strait Islanders. The fish represents sharing and taking knowledge back to community to grow in thought and deed. The stars speak of the possibilities that are for our people. Our strong future, in a shared space and beyond.
