Barangaroo and her clan respected the land, only using the resources they needed. They used things found in the natural environment for food, medicine, shelter and tools.
Artworks 1 & 2 by Guardian Childcare Centre, Barangaroo
The first two pieces of art in the ‘Land’ series were created by children who attend Guardian Childcare Centre at Barangaroo. The Social Sustainability team spent some time with the enthusiastic kindy kids and talk to them about Barangaroo the woman and why respecting our land is so important. The children soon got off to work with their pencils, crayons and textas and produced two stunningly colourful pieces of art which will be on the core of the building in early 2021.
Loving the land
Who lives on the land?
Artworks 3, 4 and 5 by students from La Perouse Public School
Students welcomed members of the Lendlease Social Sustainability team into the school for an immersive session to learn the story of Barangaroo, before exploring ideas for land-themed artworks.
The project generated much enthusiasm and excitement, with students sharing the many ways they look after the land and how way they connect with nature with their families and friends.
