Bábbarra Design at the Tour de France
Date & Time
For the 2019 Tour de France, Special Broadcasting Service (SBS) contacted Bábbarra Women’s Centre in order to licence Jennifer Wurrkidj’s design, for SBS presenters to wear during the Tour de France broadcasting on international television.
SBS had jerseys made in Sydney, and distributed them to the team where they were worn proudly by staff and crew throughout SBS’s coverage. The licensing arrangement was supported by Arts Law.
Jennifer is highly regarded textile artist, printmaker, bark painter and sculptor with works held in the Art Gallery of South Australia’s collection, Jennifer has worked as a textile artist at Bábbarra since 2007. Her work is characterised by bold botanical motifs and a keen attention to surface, texture and the layering of line and colour in her prints and designs.
