A Cultural and Creative Experience: Our RAP Journey

25 October 2022

The Niche’s conference rooms were turned into a cultural and creative hub when award-winning Aboriginal artist Sammy Wyborn (of the Djugun, Yawuru and Bardi Jawi tribes) facilitated the creation of iLA and Indigo’s artworks for the Reconciliation Action Plan (RAP).

iLA and Indigo staff at two tables creating two paintingsILA and Indigo staff chosen to participate in the experience, were hesitate at first, but doubts about artistic abilities were turned into enthusiasm under the expert guidance of Sammy.

As well as the artistic endeavours, the day provided opportunities for sharing and storytelling.

“My (Aboriginal) culture is all about sharing and looking after our community. I love to share, have conversations, and create connections, as it creates opportunities for learning, and learning diminishes myths and disbeliefs” Ms Wyborn said.

Feedback from the day was all positive, with participants saying it made them feel re-charged, connected.  Some remarked they found it to be their most engaging cultural experience in a workplace to date.

iLA and Indigo are looking forward to the hanging of the artworks at the East Perth and Nedlands offices.
