"Culture is everywhere and for Aboriginal people it is in the trees and the animals and this mural shows the tree of life and the tree of spirit.
"Worimi" written on the left of the mural means ‘Hello’ in the local Dharug language and "Yaama" on the right also means ‘Hello’ in many other Aboriginal nations so we have "Hello – Welcome – Hello" across the wall as you enter the building.
"The Welcome pieces at the centre of the mural were created by our MHDA consumers and were displayed here previously so this is a real collaboration.
"The mural provides a constant reminder for staff coming to the building that we are all visitors to this land and acknowledge our elders past and present."
The mural is part of the process of making environments across NSLHD more culturally appropriate for our Aboriginal community but also many other cultures as well.
