A collaborative artwork that references the topographical patterning and material culture of Gadigal Country. The work features curved and cultural lines that reference both the geographical formations of Sydney lands and waters and the paths formed by Gadigal people before European settlment.

Outlines of objects, materials and figures, applied between the patterns and filled with vibrant ochre tones of red and yellow, reference the histories, culture and making practices of Gadigal people. The creation of this mural was initiated by Australian Design Centre, responding tot he historical importance of this site as a place of making.

The word 'bangawarra', incorporated into the mural means 'make' or 'do' in Gadigal language. The mural adds to the cultural and visual landscape of inner city Sydney, illustrating the rich, unbroken connections between this land and contemporary practices of making and design.
