NAGNATA X CHILDREN'S GROUND
Nagnata are focusing their energy on home soil, collaborating with Children’s Ground, a not-for-profit led by Aboriginal communities who are committed to creating a new and empowered future for children. The collaboration supports First Nations-led education and the arts in the remote community of Marlkawo in West Arnhem Land, where Children’s Ground teaches six days per week in the dry season. Designing a t-shirt with 100% of proceeds going to the organisation, Nagnata worked with artist Keisha Leon, Waanyi and Kalkadoon woman and founder of Leon Designs, the First Nations owned and operated creative studio. For the design, Keisha was inspired by the natural landscape of her homeland, with the artwork symbolising her connection between Country and belonging. The project is titled ‘Everything Comes From Country’ and is a continuation of Nagnata’s ‘Everything Comes From The Bush’ motto that has informed Nagnata’s ART + Activism initiatives. “Nagnata’s intention is to create a multi-faceted platform merging art and activism, through community focused initiatives that are close to our heart,” says Founder & Director, Nagnata, Laura-May Gibbs. “We are strongly aligned with The Children’s Ground values in believing that power, knowledge and opportunity should be shared by all people. The brand is committed to listening and learning from our First Nations People, and to make meaningful contributions and positive action towards reconciliation through our business.” Mason Ping and Pierce Jones wear the Nagnata x Children’s Grounds tee, available now.
