Reclaim the Void is a bold cross-cultural project that seeks to raise awareness of the story of country and its importance in Aboriginal culture in both its physical and spiritual dimensions. It will result in a huge dot artwork made from thousands of rugs, created by communities across WA.

About Reclaim the Void
Reclaim the Void was born from Ngalia elders in Leonora, Western Australia, expressing their pain and grief at ‘those gaping mining holes left all over our country’. The idea was conceived to symbolically ‘seal’ an area of country affected by mining, with an artwork expressing the story of country.
The project seeks to raise awareness of the story of country and its importance in Aboriginal culture in both its physical and spiritual dimensions.
Country is alive with story, song, dance, Tjukurrpa. When we wound country, we wound ourselves, and end up with a scarred physical and cultural landscape. Reclaim the Void is about acknowledging this and saying sorry.
Thousands of WA native trees, groundcovers, shrubs, sedges and more, all grown by volunteers at the WA not for profit nursery. All proceeds from plants sales are used to fund restoration and tree planting projects throughout WA.
