This is a one-of-a-kindness project to support senior students at Xavier Catholic College, a school at Wurrumiyanga (Bathurst Island), Tiwi Islands. Guided by their art teacher, students have studied design concepts and learnt to screen print. Starwin is working in collaboration with the school, so the students can readily sell them, with full proceeds going to the students to help raise funds for their graduation and future career pathways. (Starwin is only collecting 10% to cover transaction costs & freight.)  Many of the artists have been a part of our Tiwi Youth Girls Leadership program and we aim to continue our support of their career pathway.

Design Story

TIFLW - M. Puautjimi

My design is an appropriated men's Tiwi Islands Football League logo. I've added a woven pandanus pattern to symbolise women and the dotted lines to represent the journey us women are on to be able to play football on country.

Colour: Black bags with various ink colours

Note - students modelling the bags are not always the artist.
