Dover Beach Plaque Unveiling
July 9, 2022 - December 31, 2022
In 1976, two Aboriginal men landed on Dover Beach, and planted the Aboriginal flag, symbolically claiming the land for Indigenous Australians. One of them was the famous activist Paul Coe.
Commissioned by Border Crossings’ ORIGINS Festival, Paul’s daughter and Wiradjuri-British artist Jasmine Coe is designing a plaque to be installed permanently on Dover Beach as a memorial to these events. The plaque will be unveiled with wraparound activity, including an online discussion with Paul and Jasmine Coe.
