The unveiling of an Acknowledgement of Country plaque and artwork at headspace Dubbo has reaffirmed its commitment to supporting Indigenous young people, families and communities.
On the heels of NAIDOC Week, staff gathered in their Church Street office on Monday for the unveiling.
Artist Riki Salam of We are 27 Creative produced headspace Dubbo’s new and permanent artwork after talks with key members of the headspace network and cultural advisers.
Rachel Thomas, headspace Dubbo program manager, said the artwork and plaque represented continuing commitment to engaging and assisting Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander young people, their families and communities.
“The artwork describes the relationship between mind, body, spirit, culture and country,” she said.
“To have something that so beautifully draws together the message of headspace and the beauty of Aboriginal spirituality is extremely important to us and we are truly honoured to be able to celebrate Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander communities in such a meaningful way.”
