Exclusive NAIDOC Week early release

In celebration of NAIDOC Week and the First Nations artists we have partnered with, we’re giving Canteen supporters early access to purchase these two new bandanna designs! 

Designed by Jasmine Sarin, a Kamilaroi and Jerrinja woman and emerging Aboriginal artist and graphic designer.

The colourful Ngalaya bandanna (Dharawal for ally or friend in battle) is based off a full-size artwork which is proudly displayed in Canteen’s head office on Gadigal land.

Ngalaya represents Canteen and the organisation’s commitment to reconciliation. The ‘hero feature’ (the main circle) represents Canteen as an organisation. Each concentric circle (of different size, shape and colour) represents the varied locations and different people that come together to make up the organisation and its culture. 

The connecting, fluid lines represent connection and the sharing of stories, knowledge and experience of Canteen staff and young people. The surrounding circles use colour to represent the uniqueness of each person’s cancer journey.

UPDATE: We are currently sold out of the new Ngalaya bandanna, but we will be restocking at the end of July. 

Designed by Amy Saunders, a proud Biripi woman living on Darkinjung land.

The Matriarch series is about the connection between daughter, mother and grandmother. Inspired by her unique family history and grandmother Faith. 

Amy painted the series after having her fourth child, a daughter, in 2019. Although she has been creative her whole life, Amy started painting a few years ago and now balances being an artist, mum to four kids and running a successful small business.

Canteen is committed to supporting national reconciliation in recognition of cancer’s disproportionate impact on our First Nations people.

NAIDOC Week (3 July – 10 July) celebrates the history, cultures and achievements of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples. The theme for NAIDOC Week this year is ‘Get Up! Show Up! Stand Up!’.

As an organisation, we are proud to show our commitment to supporting national reconciliation and welcome opportunities to partner with First Nations voices, as well as showcase some of the incredible work of First Nations artists we have partnered with. 

By purchasing from the Canteen Shop your support will help further our work with First Nations young people and families impacted by cancer.
