Community HeART

Community HeART is a collaborative local arts project that brings together three local artists to complete a public mural conveying a message of Welcome to newly arrived refugees and migrants to the Liverpool area.

Community HeART is a Liverpool MRC project bringing 3 artists together in a collaborative arts project to design a public mural conveying a message of ‘Welcome” to newly arrived refugees and migrants to the Liverpool area. Our diversity makes Australia a great place to live. Harmony is celebrated through our cultural diversity, our acceptance, our learning and our cultural respect for everyone who calls Australia home. We welcome new people, new families and new cultures to Liverpool every day.

Each artist contributes a unique visual representation of welcome and diversity, that when combined reflect the strength in diversity and cross-cultural collaboration.

Mazin Ahmad, is a Liverpool based Artist, studied in the College of Fine Arts in Baghdad and has worked on many art projects in Sydney. Helen Proctor is a Sydney based artist with a current focus on abstract landscape paintings. She studied at COFA and has exhibited in a number of group shows and solo exhibitions (www.helenproctor.com). Buddy Martin, also known as Biggie Billa, is an Indigenous artist who art reaches across Sydney, Queanbeyan and as far as Queensland.

With the mural now complete, we are excited to unveil the 4 metres long art piece. The project will see the melding of three distinct local cultures towards a beautiful, emotive and expressive mural that welcomes and celebrates new arrivals into the vibrant and diverse Liverpool LGA.
