Country Connections - Map: CARD Certificates
Product Code: MC363_MAIN
Reward students with these die-cut Australia Map merit certificates featuring artwork by contemporary Aboriginal artist, Daisy Hill. These certificates can be used as classroom and assembly awards to recognise student achievements and efforts.
The Country Connections collection represents all the elements which make up Country - the land, waters, sky, trees and animals. It also symbolises the connections we share with our community, friends and family. In celebration of our First Nations people and children, this collection was designed to help us learn, understand, appreciate and respect the cultural traditions and knowledge that has been passed down for thousands of years.
It is important to note that the symbols and stories shared are unique to Daisy Hill and her own interpretations and do not represent all First Nations people. All Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander cultural groups have different perspectives, interpretations and understandings of stories and knowledge passed down to them.
About the Artist
Daisy Hill is an Aboriginal artist and proud descendant of the Muruwari people from NW NSW, currently living on Yugambeh Country (Gold Coast). Daisy's art style can be described as modern and contemporary. She paints intuitively, the same way her ancestors did. Daisy feels an overwhelming connectedness to her thoughts, feelings and spirit when she paints. She describes the painting process as being deeply spiritual and meditative. Daisy has a passion to tell stories and strives to keep the traditions of her people alive. “It is a way for me to feel connected to the Motherland - the trees, water, sand, sun, earth and animals. I paint to convey the beauty I see in all things and to express my gratitude and acknowledge the Country I am walking, living and breathing. I feel so grateful that people want to invest in me and my culture,” says Daisy.
Inspired by our collaboration with Daisy Hill, ATA is proud to support the Stars Foundation. Stars supports First Nations girls and young women to attend and remain engaged at school, complete Year 12 and move into work or further study.
