Description

Indigenous Art used in the design of these polo shirts was provided by Metro South Addiction and Mental Health Services

Name: Our Cultural Being
Artist: Charlie Waters
Medium: Digital Art

Cultural practices provide people with enablers that support them to function on a daily basis. The artwork showcases visual locations and totemistic symbols that we see and use to help us get through life challenges. Having these cultural aspects in our lives are valuable. We share these practices with family, friends, work colleagues and those associated within our support circles.

The large circle is a symbolisation of a bora ring, which brings people together during ceremonies, practice healing & health who celebrate old and new cultural practices. Connection circles bring us together. The city of Brisbane is now a visual contemporary location that showcases where our people live and call home.

Metro South Addiction and Mental Health Services are a part of cultural and healing practices for our people within Brisbane and the surrounding areas. Their presence is within the middle of the work a workforce that is so valuable spiritually to heal and establish culturally safe environments for their clients.

The boomerangs are a symbol of strength and resilience for health workers. Never give up. Always return. Be there by your side.
