Reconciliation and connection

Unveiling our new artwork from Aboriginal artist Monica Turner-Collins

We feel immensely privileged to be based on Kaurna land, we acknowledge Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islanders as the traditional custodians of unceded country across Australia and respect their spiritual relationship with Country.

While our focus has always been community, over the past 12 months we have been on an important journey to make meaningful change and commence our first Reconciliation Action Plan. It's a process we have not taken lightly and while we know there is more for us to do, we are hopeful about what it means to take these steps.

A special part of this process has been engaging local Aboriginal artist Monica Turner-Collins to commission custom art pieces for display in our branch and head office - a way to honour the traditional custodians of the land we work and meet on.

On Tuesday, we were able to unveil our three incredible pieces (pictured left to right: 'The Journey', 'The Celebration' and 'The Connection') to our staff, board members, partners and community in a special launch event. We were honoured to have Monica's family in attendance to represent her.

It was a significant day as we experienced the privilege of our first Welcome to Country for Credit Union SA by Ashum Yarlupina Owen of Ngangki Warra and had the opportunity to learn through song and dance.

The connection to land was celebrated with delicious food from Block Ya Dot, a 100% Aboriginal owned catering business.

We will be sharing more about our ongoing reconciliation journey - including our amazing artwork and what it means to us - as we move forward.

We encourage you to learn more about the importance of reconciliation in South Australia.
