BioPak reveals new Indigenous Art series cups

4

BioPak has launched a new series of Indigenous art-themed cups ahead of National Aboriginal and Islanders Day Observance Committee (NAIDOC) Week, which runs from 7 to 14 July.

In collaboration with the NAIDOC committee, the Indigenous Art cup series aims to link the corporate sector to the Indigenous community through enterprise, education, and employment initiatives.

With each cup purchased, a percentage of the sales will be donated to the Ethan Indigenous IT Cadetship Program in support of the pro-bono work of CorporateConnect.AB (CCAB).

The program provides pathways into careers in IT and administrative services by educating young Australian and Torres Strait Islander on comprehensive digital literacy skills.

Showcasing the work of local indigenous artists, the cups feature the work of Davinder Hart, Kulka Fahey, and Amy Saunders.

“My Artwork is strongly connected to the earth, as is my culture. We pass down our knowledge of the land and how to care for it and we share it with everyone. The ‘Sharing Knowledge’ paintings represent this,” says Bibbulmun/Ngemba man Davinder Hart.

This year’s theme, chosen by the National NAIDOC Committee, is Keep the Fire Burning! Blak, Loud & Proud.

The theme honours the enduring strength and vitality of First Nations culture, presenting fire as a symbol of connection to Country and to the rich traditions that define Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples.

“Over the past year I have been dedicated to working hard to create a name and brand to showcase my artwork and heritage; with the immense desire that one day my art, passion, can be my life work and continue to bring happiness to myself and others everyday through my paintings and designs,” says award-winning Aboriginal artist Kulka Fahy.

BioPak’s Indigenous Art series is now available in single-wall industrially compostable and in double-wall home compostable BioCups, available in 8 ounce, 12 ounce and 16 ounce sizes. The company will continue to update its cups every six months.
