Cross River Rail Delivery Authority: RAP Bespoke Artwork

As an organisation, Cross River Rail Delivery Authority is keenly aware of the importance of connection to place and connection to each other, and that the idea of connection is deeply rooted in First Nations belief. With this in mind, it approached Gilimbaa to collaborate on its first Reconciliation Action Plan (RAP) artwork alongside Goreng Goreng artist Rachael Sarra.

At the heart of Meanjin (Brisbane) is the Mairwar (Brisbane River), a cultural pulse beating, connecting and igniting stories, customs and lore. This always has and always will be a deeply cultural site. From our past, through to the present, with every footstep we are guided by our ancestors’ spirit. As we shift, disturb, adapt and grow we are reminded of culture anchoring us to place and supporting us through our journeys together. Once we understand and learn from the past, connect in the present and continue this link through to the future we will be able to create an environment that represents and reflects everyone. The more we connect, the more we are able to grow vibrantly, together.
