The first international artists commissioned to paint in Iran
Forty years after the Iranian Revolution, two Australian artists were given a rare opportunity to paint a mural in the country's capital.They are the first international artists invited and commissioned by the Tehran City Council and the Australian Embassy to paint a mural in the country.After three weeks of traveling Iran and studying the culture, the artists were inspired to paint two men they met in a bazaar, who were repairing a traditional Persian carpet.The finished mural is a six-storey high, 40 metre wide painting aptly called "The Carpet Repairmen".https://www.abc.net.au/triplej/programs/hack/australian-artists-paint-mural-in-iran/10804654

Australia’s Nation Brand Advisory Council has decided to rebrand the Australian Made logo, arguing the green and gold logo featuring a kangaroo is internationally recognised but does not represent Australia’s lesser-known assets such as technology and education.https://www.smh.com.au/business/the-economy/wattle-inspired-logo-to-sell-australia-to-the-world-20200701-p557u2.html

A Necessary Read- Six Capitals by Libby Gleeson-White
An accessible timely and fascinating account of the revolution going on in the world of finance - and how accountants really can save the planet. Climate change is here and capitalism is implicated: it's programmed to privilege profit and growth over human communities and the living earth. Six Capitals charts the rise of four movements designed to overthrow capitalism as we know it: multi-capital accounting, for society, nature and profit; the push for a new corporation legally bound to benefit nature and society while making a profit.

A Goodes Start- Monuments to Black Heroes
There's a potent message in the mural of Indigenous AFL legend Adam Goodes that appeared – as big as a two-storey house – on an inner-Sydney building on Thursday. Amid the global Black Lives Matter protests, and the tearing down of statues of once-feted slave-traders and racists, here was the making of a monument to a black hero. A living Australian hero.https://www.theage.com.au/sport/afl/build-monuments-to-black-heroes-and-here-s-a-goodes-start-20200612-p551vv.html
