Barwon Health – Maternity Ward

The Barwon Health Maternity Ward provides pregnancy, birth and postnatal care to the Geelong community and the wider Barwon South West region.

As part of the ward renovation project, Martlette was engaged to bring the reception area to life.

Artwork design and colour selection was inspired by original indigenous artworks by Indigenous Artist, Ammie Howell. The gathering of circles represent the support and coming together of community, family and friends. The river and native animals connect these groups and are symbolic of the shared experience of bringing new life into the world.

This project has been funded through the generous support of the @barwonhealthfoundation and @cottonon
