City re­quests art­work sub­mis­sions

The Weekly Advertiser Horsham - - News -

Mem­bers of the Abo­rig­i­nal and Tor­res Strait Is­lan­der com­mu­nity have an in­vi­ta­tion to sub­mit art­work to be in­cluded in Hor­sham Ru­ral City Coun­cil’s Rec­on­cil­i­a­tion Ac­tion Plan doc­u­ment.

The coun­cil’s Abo­rig­i­nal Ad­vi­sory Com­mit­tee is about to fi­nalise the Wim­mera’s first rec­on­cil­i­a­tion ac­tion plan and ex­pects en­dorse­ment by Rec­on­cil­i­a­tion Aus­tralia in the near fu­ture.

Coun­cil com­mu­nity wellbe- ing di­rec­tor Kevin O’brien said the art­work would be both for dis­play and dig­i­tal re­pro­duc­tion.

“We are seek­ing pieces of art­work to re­flect our vi­sion, which is to cre­ate an im­proved un­der­stand­ing of Abo­rig­i­nal and Tor­res Strait Is­lan­der his­to­ries, cul­tures and fu­ture as­pi­ra­tions through fos­ter­ing mean­ing­ful re­la­tion­ships within our com­mu­ni­ties,” he said.

“Abo­rig­i­nal Ad­vi­sory Com­mit­tee mem­bers will present a short­list of en­tries to the lo­cal indige­nous com­mu­nity in Fe­bru­ary and the win­ner will then be de­cided by a vote by the com­mu­nity.”

Peo­ple must sub­mit art­works by Jan­uary 18.

En­ties can de­liv­ered to Mr O’brien in per­son at Hor­sham Civic Cen­tre, by mail to PO Box 511, Hor­sham, 3402 or by email to [email protected]
