The development and implementation of a Reconciliation Action Plan (RAP) ensures the voices of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples are heard and considered in all of our decisions and actions.
By improving cultural understanding throughout our PHN, we can influence sustainable change that will incorporate the knowledge, traditions, customs and values of Aboriginal and Torres Strait islander peoples and their cultures.
With improved understanding, we will be able to provide efficient and effective support to our key health service delivery partners to improve the health of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples that reside in our communities.
Darling Downs and West Moreton PHN commissioned Riki Salam from 'We are 27 Creative' to develop a bespoke piece of artwork to depict the PHN's commitment to reconciliation.
Connected country, healing place
By Riki Salam
Kangaroo bounds on red sands, this land is ancient and connected, wind blows all traces as life disappears.
Rains renew Country, bird call pierces throughout, as landscape is coloured in diversity and grandeur. Carving its way through the land formations are created – Creation Spirit inspires song, dance, ceremony.
Water flows, knowledge is exchanged. This place of healing connects people to Country, Culture and Community.
Our knowledge is in this land and we are all connected to this place, healing begins.
Health and hope of the people is restored through listening, learning, sharing, caring and understanding one another.
