Another artist that uses art as a voice in trying to create a a better world is Kylie Hill.
Kylie’s artworks will feature on RAP’s (Reconciliation Action Plans).
This is an important document that supports an organisations business plan and its integrity.
The plan includes practical actions that will drive a company’s contribution to reconciliation both internally and in the communities in which it operates.
Kyles’s artwork reflects the five dimensions of a RAP which include race relations, equity and equity, institutional integrity, unity and historical acceptance.
When creating this work Kylie considered what the artwork had to deliver and what it had to achieve in speaking to the viewer in regards respect, relevance, reciprocity, responsibility and relationships.
Every Reconciliation Action Plan is about strengthening relationships between Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples and non-indigenous peoples.
As an artist myself I use art as a sound board for sharing messages, and as a forum to bring awareness to issues that need attention.
I have found that these conversations can find their way outside the frame of a meeting or community event.
