TAFE NSW student, Angela Roberts understands the importance of unifying cultures. In fact, she is using her art to make it a reality.

 

 

Angela is currently studying Certificate III in Art and Design, and her art has been on display in a variety of public exhibitions.

Her most recent design, 'Circle of life, hands of time' has been chosen to help promote the organisation's Aboriginal Pathways initiative.

"Angela's design was broad and inclusive and anyone could relate to it, with its themes of generations and inclusivity," said Jacky Beckhurst, Creative Industries teacher at TAFE NSW.

Angela draws inspiration from fellow TAFE NSW students as well. "My favourite things about studying at TAFE, apart from the learning, is the classroom atmosphere, and the way that we all encourage each other. It is a real mix of people – everyone is so different," she told the Port Macquarie Express.

Angela is in a group of Aboriginal artists exhibiting at the 'Our Culture, Our Connections, Our Stories' June exhibition at the Glasshouse Port Macquarie Regional Gallery as part of an ongoing partnership between TAFE NSW and the Glasshouse.
