I have a dream...we have the dreaming

This is the last day of NAIDOC Week. NAIDOC stands for National Aborigines' and Islanders' Day of Observance Committee.  To find out more, click here.

The Martin Luther King "I have a dream" mural was painted in August 1991 by Andrew Aiken and Juilee Pryor (with Tony Spanos), part of a group of mural artists called Unmitigated Audacity Productions.

The Aboriginal flag followed later, after several changes: see here and here.

I believe the complementary mural "we have the dreaming" mural was painted in 2011.


  1. Your post causes me to wonder if Rev Dr. Martin Luther King expressed concerns and support for Aboriginal rights in Australia.

  2. I don't know if he did, Dave...but he certainly inspired human and civil rights movements around the world.
