Many Nations Art Gallery

 

Winya Indigenous Furniture is constantly striving to give back to Indigenous communities as we understand the importance of actively working to aid with the economic inclusion of Indigenous peoples. Among our many current initiatives we are doing to achieve our goals of giving back, we have recently worked with another Indigenous company to begin the Many Nations Art Gallery.

Winya has devised a whole new model that involves corporate Australia in our process of working with Indigenous Australians. The Many Nations Art Gallery is a whole new model for corporate Australia to more directly impact on remote communities.

The Many Nations Art Gallery is an original art concept that focuses directly on a region of Australia and their stories told through their art. The majority of the profits from the sales of the art will go directly to the artist.

Winya is working to provide a unique opportunity to drive income and opportunity directly back to remote communities. Winya as the leader in corporate social responsibility is working hard to ensure that our influence in the corporate world continues to impact Indigenous Australians positively.

Sydney Design Festival

 

Winya is opening its office to be included within the events around the Sydney Design Festival. Winya is presenting in our Sydney City Office a presentation; First People: First Design.

In this talk, Director Greg Welsh will discuss cultural messages and symbolism to aid designers to respectfully include Indigenous design into their projects. Designers will also gain understanding on how they can incorporate Indigenous design concepts to make your office spaces more vital and effective.

The concepts of Indigenous life are now part of every successful business, it’s just that most people do not see this. They don’t see the corroboree, the waterhole, storytelling, dreaming, walkabout in the office, but these elements are being incorporated into all modern office designs.

Winya draws this unique vision of first Australia into today in a very hands-on lecture program for Sydney Design Festival in its new City Center showroom.

We’ve worked hard to make this presentation a presentation that provides 3cpd points.
