WA ACCO Peak Body


Artwork story

This artwork represents the Aboriginal community and their leaders. They are working with Aboriginal Health service providers in closing the gap through providing more services to strengthen the Aboriginal Community Controlled Organisations with a new Peak body for social services.

The two meeting places in the centre represent the community and their leaders. The footprints represent the continuous journey to bettering the health outcomes for Aboriginal people.

The earthy pink dots represent country. The blue waves represent health services within the communities who work with the Aboriginal people that surround them. The services are coming together in this story to continue closing the gap.
