NAIDOC Week is celebrated in Australia from 8-15 November 2020 to commemorate the history, culture and achievements of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples.
To mark the event, the College this week launches its Aboriginal Artwork. Designed by Jordan Lovegrove, Ngarrindjeri Artist of Dreamtime Creative, the artwork represents the College’s commitment to grow and support the Indigenous pathology workforce across Australia to achieve better health outcomes for its community.
Artist: Jordan Lovegrove, Ngarrindjeri Artist of Dreamtime Creative.
The artwork, ‘Mother Earth’ represents Indigenous Australia. The large meeting place is RCPA and the pathways reach out to different communities represented by the smaller meeting places. The cell like patterns represent the care, treatment and prevention of disease through pathology, and the dotted patterns represent the training and growth of the Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander pathology workforce.
