We have created the campaign to enable many thousands of Australians from all walks of life to play a positive role in securing a YES vote at the 2023 referendum on an Indigenous Voice to parliament.
Together with Koorie Women Mean Business (KWMB), in 2022 we commissioned Yorta Yorta artist Alkina Edwards to create an artwork which represents the longstanding partnership between KWMB and the Victorian Women’s Trust.
Alkina lives in Echuca on Yorta Yorta Country. Alkina is a proud Yorta Yorta, Wemba Wemba, Mutthi Mutthi and Wiradjuri woman on her mother’s side and a proud Bundjalung and Wakka Wakka woman on her father’s side.
Using our story as inspiration, Alkina has created an artwork which represents the long standing connection between these women’s organisations, symbolising sharing knowledge and history, and coming together on the land we walk on.
In 2023, Alkina gave us permission and licence to adapt her artwork for Together, Yes. In line with the Berne convention, we recognise Alkina Edwards the artist and creator. We thank her for her creative insight and artistic expression which has greatly inspired the look and feel of Together, Yes.
