Call-out for Kaurna Aboriginal artists

Call-out for Kaurna Aboriginal artists to create artwork for Sonder’s Reconciliation Action Plan

As part of our ongoing reconciliation journey, we would like to engage with a Kaurna Aboriginal artist to create an original, contemporary artwork to reflect the importance of reconciliation and Sonder’s reconciliation journey from the present and into the future.

We would like the artwork to symbolize Sonder’s vision for reconciliation – Better Care, Better Health & Better Access through a culturally safe workplace which builds understanding, respect and shared responsibility along with community leadership in our reconciliation journey.

The artwork should signify our commitment to continued and amplified efforts to cultivate relationships, respect and opportunities that will bring our vision for reconciliation to life.

The artwork should represent two-way learning of Aboriginal and non-Aboriginal people working together to implement Sonder’s strategy.

We would like the artwork to be created in a digital, vector format and in our corporate colour scheme (colours can be provided upon request).

The artwork will be used as corporate branding on our future Reconciliation Action Plans and will also be placed on display in a prominent position at each of our locations.

Remuneration for this project will be negotiated with successful applicant via Sonder’s Reconciliation Action Plan Committee Co-Chairs.
