Poster, 'Real Australians say welcome', designed by Peter Drew

Artist
This poster is part of an awareness raising campaign, 'Real Aussies say welcome' started by Adelaide street artist, Peter Drew.

The placing of posters in public spaces is Drew's way of drawing attention to Australia's immigration issues and a direct response to the Australian government's 'Stop the Boats' campaign. Peter Drew's campaigns have informed peoples' attitude to Australian identity, migration, difference and created nationwide community involvement and comment.
