Indigenous artist Lakkari Pitt captivated audiences with a live art activation at Liberty Place on Tuesday 28 May and Wednesday 29 May, between 10am to 2pm, during National Reconciliation Week 2024.

This live painting session offered a unique opportunity to witness the creative process and engage with Indigenous culture.

Lakkari’s art captures the movement, essence, and stories of Country, exploring the deep connections between people and the land. Once complete, the artwork will be auctioned off, with proceeds going to Wiradjuri Dreaming Centre in Lakkari’s current hometown of Forbes.

While Lakkari brings her artistic vision to life, visitors also enjoyed the ongoing exhibition, Keep the Fire Burning, displayed throughout Liberty Place. This exhibition of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander cultures explores themes of unity, cultural heritage, and positive change. It features an eclectic mix of art, including digitised tree carvings, ethereal photography, and vibrant digital paintings.

The live art activation with Lakkari is part of a broader celebration of National Reconciliation Week, which ran from 27 May to 3 June, and encourages us to continue the fight for justice and the rights of First Nations peoples. It is curated and produced by aMBUSH Gallery and presented by Liberty Place.
