Aunty Di's image on clocktower for Naidoc Week

Mingaletta chairperson Aunty Dianne O'Brien has been selected to have her image projected onto the Majestic Clock Tower at the Grand Concourse at Central Station, Sydney, for Naidoc week.

The 2018 Naidoc theme is "Because of her, we can!"

The theme is intended to celebrate the invaluable contribution of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander women in communities, families, history and the nation.

Aunty Di is one of a few who have been selected to have their image projected onto the clock tower.

NSW Trains service development and support officer Mr Mark Champley said Auntie Di had been selected to "acknowledge her resilience, hard work and commitment to the community".

"Aunty Di has been the chairperson of Mingaletta for almost 10 years and an active community volunteer for over 40 years," Mr Champley said.

"Mingaletta ATSIC is a vital link for local indigenous people," he said.

"It is a welcoming place for indigenous and non-indigenous people to meet and feel part of the community.

"It promotes cultural awareness, youth activities, health and wellbeing programs and reconciliation.

"Recently Aunty Di joined other powerful Aboriginal and Torres Strait women for a half day photo shoot in preparation for the week-long projection display.

"You can view the images from 6pm to midnight from Sunday, July 8, for the entire Naidoc Week at Central Station Sydney.

"We encourage the Central Coast community to view the display on the Clock Tower which will be shared as a story of a woman who has inspired others within community and country because of their actions."
