‘Connections’ by Pam Brandy-Hall ‘Baribunma”

The Canterbury-Bankstown Bulldogs are proud to release our 2024 Indigenous Range and Jersey - 'Connections’ by Pam Brandy-Hall, a proud Bundjalung artist who has drawn inspiration from our homeland's city landscape for her latest special design.

Introducing the 2024 Bulldogs Indigenous Jersey design: Connections by Pam-Brandy Hall.

The design takes inspiration from Sydney's skyline, streetscape and foreshore.

The artwork is an aerial view of Sydney, the wider homeland of the proud and rich Bulldogs Club. It represents aspects of Gadigal and Eora Country including meeting places, water holes and sacred sites.

It has elements of weather patterns and the seasons, and features a nod to sustainable living off the country.

Proud Bundjalung artist Brandy-Hall said Sydney Harbour and its foreshore and surrounds represent a meeting place where traditional owners and custodians of the land, families, national and international visitors, and the people who work and live in the local community come together to connect and celebrate.

With Sydney city's landscape set to light up for an annual celebration of creativity over 23 days and nights this May through June with Vivid, Brandy-Hall drew inspiration for her design from the unity the cultural celebration will bring.

Vivid Festival returns to light up Sydney from May 24, the evening after the Bulldogs light up Sydney Olympic Park’s Accor Stadium for the NRL’s first official Indigenous Round match on Thursday, May 23.

This year's Vivid will be staged across some of the Harbours' most iconic landscapes including the Sydney Opera House and Harbour Bridge, both of which are featured as connecting circles and ovals in her 2024 Bulldogs Indigenous apparel designs. The festival will showcase a number of First Nations talent and much like the NRL’s Indigenous Round, will aim to inform and educate eventgoers on Indigenous history and culture.

The jersey that the Bulldogs will wear for the Indigenous Round match is inspired by the kaleidoscope of patterns and the explosive display of colours that will light up our homeland and connect thousands of people when this festival arrives in our city's foreshores.

The 2024 Bulldogs Indigenous jersey and shorts designs are available for pre-order now, allowing Members and fans the opportunity to receive in time for the Round 12 clash.

The Bulldogs' full Indigenous apparel range will be available for purchase from next week.


About the artist: Pam is the granddaughter of the Aboriginal Activist, the late Jack Patten. Entirely self-taught, Pam is inspired by dreamtime stories, passed on to her from her grandmother.

Pam works with vivid combinations of earthy tones, pastels and ochres, dynamic lines and bold shapes characterise her modern designs which often employ graphic symbols from the flora and fauna of her ancestry.

Pam’s skin name is Baribunma meaning ‘to dream about’ in Bundjalung. Her work has been exhibited in locations as diverse as the Museo Internationale della Ceramiche Faenza, S.H. Irvin Gallery and the Rainbow Serpent Gallery in Sydney; the offices of Ansett Australia, Coffs Harbour Hospital, Hunter Valley Wineries and Maitland Council Chambers in NSW; Shepparton Museum in Victoria, Relationships Australia, Tharawal Aboriginal Corporation, Department of Education and OzAboriginal.

Pam’s artwork is depicted on various licensed merchandise which is produced by Australian companies and showcased in museums and gallery retail outlets. Her artwork has been selected to feature in the 2022 and 2023 Aboriginal Calendar which is produced by Browntrout.

Notes: “As a Bundjalung artist, I paint stories about the Dreamtime, myths, Aboriginal survival, land, animals and waterways. I use rich vivid colours, earth tones and traditional style to tell the stories of the Dreamtime, my country and my people."
