Dylan Mooney

Dylan Mooney

Dylan Mooney is a Yuwi man from Mackay, Central Queensland, Torres Strait Islander man from Erub and Badu Island and a Australian born South Sea Islander. He is currently studying a Bachelor of Contemporary Australian Indigenous Art at the Queensland College of Art. Dylan’s practice includes painting, prints and drawing inspired by history, culture, family history, responding to social media and community stories.

Vernon Ah Kee

Vernon Ah Kee

Vernon Ah Kee is a member of the Kuku Yalandji, Waanji, Yidinji and Gugu Yimithirr peoples. His multi-faceted practice includes works that range from large-scale drawings of his ancestors to hard-hitting text-based works and installations. Through clever puns and plays on words and objects, Ah Kee fuses the history and language of colonisation with contemporary black/white political issues to expose degrees of underlying racism in Australian society.

Troy Casey

Troy Casey

Troy is passionate about harnessing economic opportunities to create positive social change for First Nations Australians. He combines his extensive community engagement experience spanning the government, not-for-profit and higher education sectors, with his curatorial practice, working collaboratively with communities to ensure First Nations voices are embedded across projects within public art, placemaking, and urban design.
