A series of murals created by residents will prove a vibrant addition to the community of Warrawong.
The murals were developed with Warrawong residents as part of Illawarra Shoalhaven Place Planning project and were unveiled in a launch at Greene St Park on Friday.
The three murals will be situated on the wall bordering the Todd and Bent Street social housing estate.
Coomaditchie United Aboriginal Corporation was commissioned to undertake workshops with local residents living in social homes in Warrawong to create a series of murals that represent the area they live in.
Local residents, including a number of emerging and talented artists worked with Coomaditchie artists to identify and paint images reflecting the Warrawong community and natural environment.
"The project was a pleasure to work on, we tried hard to incorporate all things that depicted the Warrawong area, such as the lake, the people and their cultures," artist Lorraine Brown said,
The murals have been developed through the Illawarra Shoalhaven Place Planning project in conjunction with Mission Australia and NSW Department of Communities and Justice (DCP).
"The murals are a vibrant addition to the Warrawong area. The creation process has connected community members and helped in contributing to a sense of community pride and resilience,"Mission Australia Regional Leader Brett Fahey said.
A further two panels created as part of the project will be installed in the Illawong Gardens housing estate in the coming weeks.
