DDR Australia are excited to announce our first ever Aboriginal art competition and invite young emerging local Noongar artists between the ages of 16 and 25 to enter.
As an Aboriginal majority owned business, we are committed to the genuine engagement of Indigenous people and contributing to Indigenous communities by providing valuable opportunities. By investing in individuals, we can positively impact whole families and communities.
The original copy of the winning artwork will be proudly displayed at our Head Office reception in Balcatta WA.
We operate across all states and territories in Australia, with our bases in Perth and Darwin.
We are always respectful of the land and her custodians.
We recognise our projects can create an environmental footprint and are conscious of our responsibility to protect the land on which we work.
We welcome new opportunities to learn from one another and grow together.
We embrace new challenges and working conditions. We stand tall together.
Our hard work is building strong foundations and strengthening relationships for ourselves, our families and our communities.
Why emerging young artists and not professional?
We are passionate about creating opportunities for young Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples and empowering them to succeed. We want to give emerging young artists the chance to create a meaningful art piece that showcases their culture and art skills.
