The concept design of bara, an upcoming permanent artwork by artist Judy Watson to celebrate the First Peoples of Sydney — the traditional custodians of Gadigal Country — has been revealed by City of Syndey.
“… [the] concept for bara re-imagines ancient gathering spaces where people sat by fires on the headlands and feasted. ‘bara’ will provide a quiet space for ceremony, reflection and contemplation in a busy and ever-changing city. It will be inspiring and educational, beautiful and transformative.” said artist Judy Watson.
The City of Sydney will work closely with Judy Watson and cultural custodians to deliver the artwork. bara is expected to be unveiled in 2020.
