Reconciliation Action Plan: about the artwork

rap-art-thumbnail.jpgTo us, this is more than vibrant imagery. To us, this is a central part of our reconciliation journey.

As we developed our RAP, we wanted to ensure that we communicated our RAP in both words and images.

The Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander design depicts the journey of Reconciliation of the Crime and Corruption Commission. The journey begins with CCC staff moving among Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander communities and listening, to hear the stories for ourselves. Importantly listening with respect to the past and learning from the lessons shared by Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander communities to effect and build lasting change for the future.

descriptor-art-thumbnail.jpgThe CCC’s Indigenous icon represents the Commission’s commitment to Reconciliation through deliverables in the key target areas of Relationships, Respect and Opportunities. This icon is symbolic of the consultation where the Commission sits, listens and respects the Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander issues with regards to crime and corruption.
