Artwork honours Patron

WRAD Health is now proudly displaying a special painting of Patron Ruby Hunter, kindly donated Ruby’s friend artist Bindii Cody Nappangarttii Smith and her brother Eric Richards.

Ruby was posthumously made a Patron of WRAD Health last year, joining her late partner and fellow musician Archie Roach.

This painting serves as a living tribute, to the spirit of Ruby Hunter. Ruby was a trailblazer in the world of music and a beacon of strength, resilience and creativity and a source of inspiration for generations to come.
Ruby’s brother Eric Richards endorsed the artwork, saying it reflected a deep appreciation for what his sister represents in her journey and a desire to share her legacy with the world.

Bindii is a truly gifted artist whose brushstrokes bring stories to life and WRAD Health appreciates the generosity of this donation to celebrate Ruby’s enduring impact.
