BINGO celebrates National Reconciliation Week 2021
BINGO wanted to honour the 2021 NRW theme More than a word. Reconciliation takes action, by holding an event which provided an opportunity for the BINGO team to learn more about Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander cultures and histories.
The event was opened by BINGO RAP Working Group member and Learning and Development Officer Natalie Davies who is also the artist behind BINGO’s new Reconciliation artwork. Natalie shared some of her family’s story and why reconciliation action is more important than ever in Australia today.
As part of the event, BINGO was honoured to host Jessie from Nulungu Dreaming who provided the team with a cultural demonstration.
BINGO’s NRW event was also an opportunity to unveil our new Reconciliation artwork truck, which can be seen around the streets of Sydney.
Titled Sustaining Country and Resources, Natalie’s artwork reflects the many Nations on which our trucks and sites operate in New South Wales, Victoria and Queensland. With an open brief, Natalie wanted to create a family heirloom for BINGO that represented both the Company’s vision for Reconciliation and the importance of caring for Country and sustaining resources for future generations.
BINGO began its reconciliation journey more than two and a half years ago and will be completing its first INNOVATE RAP in June, with the new INNOVATE RAP 2021-23 commencing in July this year.
