The Coolamon Design


As a part of our continuing work on reconciliation across the district, we have partnered with mantirridesign to create the Coolamon design, which will act as a visual reminder of our district's traditional custodians: the Peramangk and Kaurna Peoples.

The artwork is reminiscent of the Shared Country mural that can be seen on Torrens Valley Road in Gumeracha and reflects the Seven Sisters, arranged as waterholes along the course of a river, with coolamons laying amongst thickets of sedges.



Above: examples of Shared Country, below the Gumeracha Soldiers' Memorial Hospital on Torrens Valley Road.

The elements of the design:​​​
Stars​/Waterholes
​River
​Coolamons
​Sedges





As this project continues we will provide updates to our community, and look forward to sharing the final design with you across a variety of places in our district.

 
Council acknowledges that we conduct our business on the traditional lands and waters of the Peramangk and Kaurna people. We pay our respects to Elders past, present and emerging as the Custodians of this ancient and beautiful land.
