"Blacktown is a very multicultural place and we wanted that multiculturalism to be reflected in the project at Blacktown Hospital.
The reason why we have connected with Blacktown Hospital is to represent Blacktown LGA which has so many cultures. The rangoli represents culture and tradition of showing colours, joy and happiness. The women who did the rangoli felt very proud of themselves. It was empowering for them... they felt they had achieved something. That was the most wonderful part of putting the display up – the spectators going by and looking it were enjoying it but also the women - they were not just mums, they were proud. It was really encouraging." Sonja – SydWest Multicultural Services
