As part of the celebrations for the Commonwealth Heads of Government Meeting (CHOGM) held in Perth, Western Australia in October 2011, Nomad Two Worlds created a powerful collaborative art collection and outdoor exhibition entitled “Portrait of Diversity”.

The impressive outdoor exhibition, held in the Hay Street and Murray Street Malls, received heavy traffic and fantastic press attention and commentary. Longtime Nomad supporter Donna Karan was on hand, along with Nomad creator and photographer Russell James and then Western Australian Premier Colin Barnett, to open it officially on October 24th 2011 in Perth.

The artworks portrayed 50 Western Australians representing 50 of the 53 countries in the Commonwealth, reflecting Western Australia’s great diversity.  Leading Aboriginal artists decorated the photos with intricate patterns and designs.
