REDUCE GREED T-Shirt
REDUCE GREED: STOP REVIVE SURVIVE shirt is an artist-made shirt designed by Quandamooka artist of Moreton bay in Qld, and a descendant of the Ngugi people from Mulgumpin (Moreton Island) living on Yugambeh country, on the Gold Coast, Qld Australia.
Proceeds will go toward the call for the restoration of First Nations custodianship of our fresh-water-ways: the rivers, creeks, lagoons, channels and wetlands that are currently threatened with imminent extinction.
Some garments will be on remaining Gilden cotton stock and others will be printed on either organic cotton or Salvage recycled material t-shirts depending on availability of product due to COVID 19 restrictions. Libby is currently researching phasing out cotton and investigating the most carbon neutral and water saving material to print her garments on.
About the Artist - Libby Harward is a descendant of the Ngugi people of Mulgumpin (Moreton Island) in the Quandamooka (Moreton Bay Area). Known for her early work as an urban graffiti artist under the pseudonym of 'Mz Murricod', and her performance-based community activism, Harward’s recent series, ALREADY OCCUPIED, engages a continual process of re-calling - re-hearing - re-mapping - re-contextualising -de-colonising and re-instating on country that which colonisation has denied Australia’s First Peoples.
Libby's work, deadstream_DABILBUNG (broken water) was set to premier at Next Wave Festival 2020 in association with Placemakers* Gold Coast.
