OCTOBER 2016 Edition - Designed by Zac Bennett-Brook to benefit AIME
Zachary Bennett-Brook is a Torres Strait Islander raised in Dharawal Country (Wollongong). Zac uses traditional techniques on nontraditional media to create contemporary artworks that combine his indigenous and surf cultures. Zac’s sock design was inspired by his time as a mentor with charity partner AIME.
“Education is key to closing the skill and employment gap between Indigenous and non-Indigenous communities.”
