Aboriginal Art Fence, Centre for Country Kids


With Telecare pods, classrooms, recreational space and an oral health unit, the Royal Far West Centre for Country Kids at Manly provides country children with access to the same level of health and wellbeing services as city kids.

Di Emme and sister company, Chiaro Screens worked with Indigenous artists, Jessica Birk, Frances Belle Parker and Andrea Pindan, to create the eye-catching art fence that borders the site. Chiaro Screens translated the artworks for the 37m of laser cut panel. The result is an architecturally sound fence that remains true to the original artworks, Healing Connections – Coast to Country and Wirnpa – Back to Country. Di Emme worked with FDC Constructions on the structural design and installation.
