The design reflects the connection between mining, people and the environment, and serves as a visual reminder of the importance of reconciliation in Kalgoorlie-Boulder.
The City of Kalgoorlie-Boulder is inviting all artists to register for the 2019 Art Prize, with more than $37,000 in prize money, plus the opportunity to hold a solo exhibition in the Goldfields Arts Centre gallery.

The design is a collaboration and is based on story telling the significance of water to the land.
