My Place is yours Place Wins the 2021 Quality Award
My Place is Your Place has won the NSW Local Health District 2021 Quality Award. The partnership project with Arts Northern Rivers, the Aboriginal Maternal Infant Health Service (AMIHS) and Northern New South Wales Local Health District, is working to deliver cultural artworks to the Women’s Care Unit (WCU) at the Lismore Base Hospital.
A big congratulations to the Aboriginal Health Worker Team who took the initiative towards creating a culturally safe and welcoming space and to the artists involved including Amarina Arts, Sylvia Khan, Saltwater Women, Bev Garces, Cherie Leon, Deb Taylor and Bec King.
Each piece of art by these incredible women born on Bundjalung or Guithabul Country tells a story, representing place, birthing and connections to family and Country.
