Woolyungah Indigenous Centre

Story behind WIC icon

Woolyungah Indigenous Centre’s (WIC) icon is inspired by a young Wiradjuri girl, Isabella Horne. Isabella was announced the winner of WIC’s icon artwork competition in 2018.

The whale represents wisdom and the sea eagle (hawk) represents leadership and protection. The airwaves created by the eagle and the bubbles created by the whale are illuminated in the centre of the piece, which shows the connection and support of the local dreaming creatures through diverse communication styles. This represents the connection and support offered by WIC staff to students and the community. The circle formation of the creatures highlights the continuous two-way learning that is offered to students throughout their academic journey. The circle shows learning is never-ending.
