Journey of Hope

Journey of Hope Swimwear

After a year in the making, we’re excited to announce our design collaboration with Riki Salam. Prepare yourself for bold prints and colourful designs from Riki’s artwork, Journey of Hope.

Funds raised will go towards prevention and support programs to work in partnership with Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander communities across the nation.

“We all have an important story, and whether that story is about that journey of going through something traumatic as having cancer, or whether it’s supporting somebody through that journey…the Journey of Hope collection aims to share these stories with the greater Australian audience, both Indigenous and non-Indigenous peoples and demonstrate a simple way of getting involved to start the conversation and support First Nation communities with their cancer journeys.” – Riki Salam

The Journey of Hope begins at the centre of the artwork, at the ceremony circle, the yarning circle. At the same time, the ‘U’ shaped symbols represent people seated around a campfire, and the daffodil shape represents Cancer Council.

The pathways that lead into the circle are the roads that Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people travel along from all different regions across Australia from urban to regional, rural and remote communities on their Journey of Hope to find the best possible cancer treatment.

The dots represent people and their families who travel with them, and the circles below represent woven baskets held by the community to support all people suffering. The daffodil radiates hope for all affected by cancer, both young and old, and their family and friends.
