The mosaics were designed in consultation with indigenous Elders and form part of the site's transition from a railway marshalling yard and container storage area to a vibrant beachside hub. These artworks record a small but important part of the local Aboriginal heritage for posterity and as such they provide added interest and value to the project. We also hope that they help provide a better understanding of Aboriginal…

As a…

International artists were also moving to Fremantle and new movements such as the Australian Centre for Concrete Art (AC4CA)…
