Essendon's art tram for 2022 was running by me today and I grabbed a few pics in Fletcher St Essendon.
‘Unapologetically Blak’ is the theme for the 2022 Melbourne Art Trams
2017's art is the work of Darcy MConnell / ENOKi - a Yorta Yotra Dja Dja Wurung artist who says:
“To be ‘Unapologetically Blak’ is to have no shame in our identity as Aboriginal people. Us mob struggle with our identity and our place in the community due to colonisation so I wanted to create a piece that would spark a sense of pride within mob to feel seen and to have a reminder that travels across Melbourne so on those days they don’t feel ‘Blak’ enough they can find a sense of pride in my tram design.”
Mal Rowe appreciating the pride.
