You can buy a red Wii, a black Wii or you can even pick up a regular old white Wii if you want – but Nintendo has teamed up with charity Shalom Gamarada, commissioning four indigenous Australian artists to create eight unique artworks on Nintendo Wii consoles. They are currently up for auction on eBay, with all the proceeds going to the Shalom Gamarada Scholarship Programme.
“Having these important artists create these pieces for Wii will not only raise much needed funds for indigenous education, it will also open new doors by raising awareness to people who would not normally be familiar with the work we do at Shalom Gamarada,” said Jenny Hillman, Curator of Shalom Gamarada Ngiyana Yana.
The money raised in the auction will all donated to the Shalom Gamarada Scholarship Programme, which encourages indigenous students to complete the university courses by providing financial support.
