Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander community members are invited to submit artwork to be included in Horsham Rural City Council’s Reconciliation Action Plan document.

Horsham Rural City Council’s Aboriginal Advisory Committee is about to finalise its Reconciliation Action Plan with endorsement by Reconciliation Australia expected soon.

Director Community Wellbeing 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,” Mr O’Brien 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.”

Artworks must be submitted by Friday 18 January 2019 and can be sent to Mr O’Brien in person at the Civic Centre, 18 Roberts Avenue Horsham, via mail, PO Box 511 Horsham 3402 or email to kevin.obrien@hrcc.vic.gov.au
