Congratulations to Joanne Cassady – Winner of the 2017 National NAIDOC Poster Competition
Wiradjuri woman Joanne Cassady is the winner of the 2017 National NAIDOC Poster Competition.
Joanne’s winning poster, titled Your Tribe, My Tribe, Our Nation, is based on this year’s NAIDOC theme, Our Languages Matter.
When informed of her poster’s selection, Joanne said she thought they had made a mistake.
“I have achieved a goal that I wanted to achieve. My Nan would have been so proud of me,” Joanne said.
The second time poster competition entrant is passionate about language and connection to culture and passing that knowledge to the next generation.
“Language means a lot to every culture. If there was one thing I could wish for, it would be to learn my language.” Joanne said.
