Black Ant Art News

Black Ant Art and Tasmanian Aboriginal Artist Allan Mansell 

Hobart City Council Action Plan  
Allan recently completed a commission for the Hobart City Council for The Reconciliation Action Plan and his images are beginning to appear on banners around the city of Hobart. 

 

Walking together towards reconciliation

The launch of this action plan took place on the lawns at Salamanca. It was well attended and The  Hobart City Council had organised an event that showed respect to the Aboriginal Community and their acknowledgment was honest and sincere.  However, it was disappointing to note that the premier or deputy or even the opposition leader did not attend as this was a most significant occasion of moving forward for all peoples.  

 

At the conclusion of the launch, Allan held a Print Work Shop for the public who attended.  Allan’s images are the throughout the  Action Plan booklet and on city council banners, his work will be used for the next 2 years throughout Hobart .
