Manjaree Aboriginal Student Place

In November 2017, Artist in Resident Juanetia (Neta) Knapp and a group of Aboriginal Students created a mural ‘Manjaree Mia Kaart’ (meaning place of learning, a place of history and a place of spiritual journey and knowledge).  The artwork is designed to bring to life the colours symbols and stories of the land and Notre Dame Aboriginal Students across Australia and to assist them in feeling connected to each other and the University.

The Manjaree Place is a meeting place for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Students and is used for student cultural and educational gatherings, study, recreation and get-togethers, it is located on the Notre Dame Fremantle Campus in Bateman Court (ND9 104).
