Kinya Lerrk is an 100% Aboriginal owned and operated business that creates design and art to make homes and offices come alive with products which celebrate Aboriginal culture and respectfully acknowledge traditional owners of land.

Kinya Lerrk (which is Wemba Wemba for ‘women coming together’) is owned and operated by Melbourne-based Aboriginal artists Emma Bamblett (Wemba Wemba, Gunditjmara, Ngadjonji and Taungurung) and Megan Van Den Berg (Dja Dja Wurrung, Yorta Yorta and Boon Wurrung).

Megan and Emma, thank you for supporting CaringKids by generously donating an Acknowledgment of Country plaque, featuring your original artwork for our toy workshop. Our workshop is a hive of activity where our volunteer team create Joy Boxes for young carers packed with toys, games, school stationery and sports equipment.

The CaringKids toy workshop is located on the land of the Bidjigal people. We acknowledge and pay our respects to the Traditional Owners of the land and all Aboriginal Elders past, present and emerging.

We encourage you to view this video sharing the story of Kinya Lerrk and to visit their website to view the range of products available for your home, school or workplace.

CaringKids recognises the Traditional Custodians of the lands and waterways where we live, work and play. We acknowledge Country which always was and always will be Aboriginal land and show our respect for Elders past, present and emerging.
