        Our 'Meeting Place' Aboriginal Art designed recycled plastic mat is all about bringing people together to converse and grow

        Eyecatching in earthy brown and white, 'Meeting Place' was designed by Dean Jakamara Briscoe, an Australian Indigenous artist from the Anmatyerre, Central Desert region. The symbolism of 'Meeting Place' is people sitting around a central campfire, gathering to discuss the day’s business. The meeting place is significant for many reasons. It's a place for conversation and a place to build relationships and community too. In the modern world, this mat can also be used to invite discussion about many topics, including culture, family life and Indigenous symbols in art.

        Popular in schools and early learning centres as a group time mat, you can use this comfy setting for reading and story times, or as a play mat. It's lightweight and super easy to transport, so can easily be moved from inside to outside for a picnic lunchtime under the shade of a tree. Like all our outdoor mats, it is made from recycled plastics, meaning it is naturally waterproof and therefore easy to care for and keep clean and hygienic. 

        It's one of our many popular group time mats as the design lends itself to helping children choose a symbol to sit on, facing the centre. It invites discussion about many topics, including culture, family life and Indigenous symbols in art. Being reversible, this design gives you two looks for the price of one and also extends the life of your mat. You could pair these with a selection of our Aboriginal cushion covers to inject some more colour, culture and comfort. Click here for an interesting read about teaching Aboriginal culture in primary school.

         'Meeting Place' is also the perfect camping companion. It provides another living area and helps to keep the dirt and sand out of your tent. Muster fellow campers to a central point to discuss the day's plans and to enjoy breakfast before you go adventuring. Basically, anywhere you want to gather friends and family to share games, food or conversation, this mat will be in the middle of it all! 

        We're now exploring how we can 're-recycle' your unwanted mats! Our exciting initiative for re-purposing and re-using them is a must-read.
