Connections artwork

The artwork

This bright and colourful artwork was created by Wandandi Noongar and Ait Koedal artist and designer, Tyrown Waigana.

The artwork features many different colours and patterns to represent the rich diversity of the Western Australian education community, with the connections symbol being reused across the state.

Central to the artwork is the shape of Western Australia, within which the state’s diverse communities are connected to form a strong network.

Connections symbol

There are various elements to the artwork including the connections symbol which is representative of community, teachers and students.

The two layered central circle illustrates the teachers and the smaller spheres around this is their students.

The line connecting the small circles with the double layered central circles displays the connection they make.

This symbol has been extracted from the graphic and artwork.
