Buriburi Twin

The Randwick Campus Redevelopment together with the South Eastern Sydney Local Health District hosted La Perouse Elder David Ingrey and the La Perouse Youth Haven for a second stone carving workshop at the Medical Superintendent's Cottage, Randwick.

The new sandstone artwork will be integrated into the landscape design of the refurbished cottage and is the twin to Buriburi, a work created by the group for the Prince of Wales Hospital Acute Services Building forecourt. 

In line with our growing emphasis on Arts in Health, storytelling and place-making, the workshops are fostering a sense of place, identity and community. Importantly, the workshops have provided the opportunity for Elders to pass on traditional techniques and stories, unique to their culture.
