Elcho Island Mural Project

Elcho Island Mural Project

Sean was recently asked by Marthakal Homelands Resource Centre (an Indigenous directed organisation in the Northern Territory responsible for providing services to remote Indigenous communities/homelands) to assist with directing and facilitating a mural project at the only motel on Elcho Island. The project was directed by local community members to provide visitors with an awareness of Indigenous culture on the island. Marthakal Visitor Accommodation is now not only more colourful, but a source of pride and identification for all those within the community who participated in the project. For more photos of the project please visit our facebook page. To contact Marthakal Visitor Accommodation you can contact them on (08) 8970 5157.

The Ownership Project would very much like to thank Julie White, Daisy Gumbala, and Susan Wedlock and all the staff at Marthakal for their support throughout the project. Sean Smith and the artists greatly appreciated it.
