The suburb of Redfern has become synonymous with Aboriginal people because of the Aboriginal Housing Company area near Redfern Station and the Redfern Park speech in 1992 which redefined Australia’s attitudes to its indigenous people.
The mural on the side wall of 17 George Street was commissioned by Sydney City Council and painted by the Public Art Squad. Entitled ‘Think Globally Act Locally’, it won the Sir John Sulman art prize in 1985.
