As part of our Reconciliation Action Plan, we engaged UP&UP and local artist, Jasmin Craciun – a Barkindji, Malyangapa woman – to work with students at Mayfield West Demonstration School to design a mural artwork for a nearby pump station.
Community projects and forums
We engage with a wide range of customer, community and stakeholder groups to build understanding around water conservation, discuss opportunities and challenges for our region and provide opportunities for diverse decision-making.
Our community deliberative forums were held in Maitland and Newcastle during October 2018 and June 2019 engaging 138 members of our community on their values and priorities for our region’s water future.
Our Reconciliation Action Plan is our commitment to move to a place of equity, justice and partnership with our Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander community.
