The story behind the logo

The WCE logo has been created to illustrate the shared vision of the groups involved in the project and it shows the unity and harmony of the community groups working together. The design was created by Darwin based Indigenous artist Jessica Sariago, who has Djaru heritage from the WA Kimberley region.

The story behind the logo

In the centre of the image, community figures reach out and unite for the initiative. Seven almost join hands to show the remote communities’ role at the centre, and twenty people around them represent the many partners supporting them.

The remote NT communities of Yuendumu, Tennant Creek, Yirrkala, Maningrida, Gunbalanya and Galiwinku are involved to find the best ways toactivate pathways to higher education in their community. The communities are located across the Northern Territory and their varied landscapes are shown in the thin wavy lines.

Together, three outer circles show the Commonwealth, the University and the communities side by side. They share a desire to help Indigenous people find pathways to university from a young age and the groups are shown uniting to achieve their mission.
