Pilbara News - - News - Louise Alling­ham

The Kar­ratha City Shop­ping Cen­tre put on a spe­cial event in which hun­dreds of com­mu­nity mem­bers came to­gether for a day to celebrate NAIDOC Week last Thurs­day.

Vis­i­tors en­joyed live music, tra­di­tional face paint­ing, damper, bush tucker and a sausage siz­zle.

Re­tail­ers and com­mu­nity groups were in­vited to join the cel­e­bra­tions in­clud­ing IBN, Indi­jiarts, the Storm soft­ball team and Naanda En­ter­prises.

The main at­trac­tion was the paint­ing of the cen­tre’s new mu­ral.

Com­mu­nity mem­bers placed their names and hand­prints on the wall to make a mu­ral which will be a per­ma­nent fix­ture on the shop­ping cen­tre’s wall.
