Kevin Neale, Branch Manager at Cleanaway’s Esperance branch, recently worked with members of Esperance Community Arts to have a skip bin decorated for local NAIDOC celebrations. The branch painted the skip black, to provide a backdrop to the artwork, and Kevin delivered it to the arts centre.

Esperance artists Jennell Reynolds and Colleen Frost, along with local school children, conceptualised the artwork to be in line with this year’s NAIDOC theme – “Because of Her We Can” and it’s designed to send a message of empowerment to young girls everywhere:

– The circles represent a meeting place
– The upside “U” represents women and girls
– The lines connect the various elements
– The dots represent the surrounding culture

The bin will be on display and in use during Esperance NAIDOC celebrations in September, as well as at future events that come up.
