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.
