Perth, WA: UWA Publishing

This book tells Patrick Tjungurrayi’s story and how he has used his art to raise awareness of a major renal health crisis facing Aboriginal people across Australia. As a dialysis patient himself, Patrick’s story illuminates the innovative and effective response to this crisis being driven by an extraordinary Indigenous organisation, The Purple House-Western Desert Dialysis.
