QAGOMA is committed to representing First Australian art and cultures through collection development, exhibition programming, identified employment and professional development, community liaison, engagement and participation. Having a Reconciliation Action Plan (RAP) provides the tools for structuring and improving our organisation’s commitment to creating meaningful impact.
Through this RAP, QAGOMA commits to a deeper consideration of how we share and understand Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples’ rich cultural histories and stories.
To acknowledge the remarkable legacy of a continuous connection with this land, we will ensure the process of reconciliation is central to our values. We want to recognise and empower Indigenous peoples and be open to truth-telling, knowing this RAP will affect the way we collect, display, care for and share our art holdings, with a focus on centring these voices and experiences.
We report on RAP implementation through the Gallery’s Annual Report. We welcome your feedback on QAGOMA’s Innovate: Reconciliation Action Plan.
