Truth, Voice, Treaty – Sharing the same dream

Artist, actor and musician Marley Sharp, a member of the KuKu-Yalanji, Quinkan and Muluridji tribes of Tropical Far North Queensland, is the winner of the My Pathway NAIDOC 2019 Poster Competition and feature art for “Where to from Uluru? – Statements from the Heart” Cairns premiere NAIDOC 2019 event to be held at Pullman International Cairns, Grand Ballroom on 4 July.

Marley’s winning art, titled ‘Truth, Voice, Treaty’ showcases “the dreaming tracks with connecting circles. Inside the circles are the words ‘Truth, Voice, Treaty which represents a dream for a brighter future we all share. The middle of the design represents a crowd of people standing together… black and white, sharing the same dream”.

“Marley’s artwork was selected because it brings forward the concept of sharing a common goal within our country of bringing both the people and cultures together,” said Kenny Bedford, a My Pathway Director and NAIDOC Board Member for Torres Strait Islands.

An Activities Officer with My Pathway based in Cooktown, Marley Sharp is also a talented actor who is making a name for himself in the Australian Film Industry. As an Indigenous actor he is a role model and inspiration to his people. Marley is known as a cultural ambassador musically, artistically and environmentally.
