Artist's statement

Not to be outdone by the young ‘fullas’ strutting their stuff at the 2010 SA NAIDOC Ball, SA NAIDOC Chair, Richard King, busts a huge break-dancing move to everyone's amazement. 'We have to show these kids that we were young once too' he said afterwards, before revealing, 'I was once on Countdown!'. Richard is an inspirational leader who wants us to be 'part of the solution rather than contributors to the problem'. By simply break-dancing at the NAIDOC Ball, he reminds us that we are capable of so much more than our expectations lead us to believe.
