The Aboriginal Art & Storytelling project aims to acknowledge, respect and share, the stories of the Northern Beaches Aboriginal people through a series of public artworks along the Coast Walk. “We are proud to have initiated this public art project which we know will enhance the beauty of the Coast Walk by offering moments of contemplation to users of this terrific walking trail. Frances Belle Parker’s works are powerful reminders of pre-contact and continuing connection to Country. - Northern Beaches Mayor Michael Regan

This is an amazing opportunity to be able to create public artwork that tells a deeper part of the coastline’s story. Through engagement with the Northern Beaches Aboriginal community, I hope we can tell stories that are relevant, as well as convey the underlying messages of the country and the people who walked this land before us.- Frances Belle Parker
