STORY - Urban Living

Story: Urban Living

Even though a lot of people live in the city and urban areas these days, filled with streets and parks, you can always keep your culture while you're there. Culture is very strong to Murri people.

In the past, we were punished for speaking our language- people were frightened and too afraid to acknowledge their culture. These days, our people are proud of their identity, and are eager to learn about their culture and language.

The circle in the middle represents the city, with the roads and parks surrounding it to form urban living. The mother, father and children are present, symbolising that past culture can survive in present society.
