My Dreaming 

Colouring competition for Children's Day 4 August 2022 


The Elizabeth Morgan House drawing competition is designed to inspire the younger generation to connect to their culture.  Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander children are born into stories of their family, culture, and Country. They carry with them the songlines of their ancestors and culture, passed down by generations. Their Dreaming is part of our history, while their futures are their own to shape.


This Children’s Day, we are asking our children what Dreaming means to them, learning how they interpret this in their lives and identity, and hearing what their aspirations are for the future.  You can colour in one of our resources or create your own dreaming picture however you want.

There will be three winners, who will receive a $50 kids voucher.  All artwork will be published in the EMHAWS’s newsletter, website, and social media platforms.  All participants receive a certificate of participation.
