The ADSSI Limited group has commissioned artworks by local Aboriginal artists as part of a project to further its relationship with people in the Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander communities.
Coinciding with NAIDOC Week, which runs from 2 – 9 July 2023, the artworks created by Aboriginal Elder Alec Squires and his niece Brenda Kidd each tell a story involving journey and community and will be applied in different marketing and communication pieces aimed at connecting with local Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people.
Staff worked with the artists to create works for ADSSI’s engagement pieces with the indigenous community. Also, the two artists attend an Aboriginal art group run by our friends at Maitland Community Care Services, strengthening the local connection between the art and our services.
ADSSI Limited trades as Beresfield Community Care, Dungog & District Neighbourcare and Maitland Community Care Services in the Hunter, and Adssi In-home Support on the Central Coast.
