Sydney Elders tells the story of four Aboriginal elders who are traditional owners of the region we know today as Sydney. The project emerged as a way of telling Sydney’s most important story — its Aboriginal story.
Wiradjuri/Kamilaroi artist Jonathan Jones has collaborated with Uncle Chicka, Aunty Esme, Aunty Sandra and Uncle Dennis to tell a personal story of Sydney, and how these elders have continued the legacy of their ancestors by actively contributing to and creating Sydney.
"These stories form a beautifully complex web that knits Sydney's landscapes together." - Jonathan Jones.
