To coincide with NAIDOC Week July 3 – 10 2022, all graduating Seeing Eye Dogs will now have a Reconciliation Action Plan (RAP) badge attached to their harnesses. Our young pups will also progressively have these badges added to their puppy coats.
Developing the RAP badges has been a project to continue Vision Australia’s commitment to its RAP plan to create more presence in community through our working dogs.
Holly McLennan-Brown was commissioned to develop the artwork to accompany our Reconciliation Action Plan. This artwork, rolled out last year, is extending our story telling about what we do and our connection to the community.
Holly is a 23-year-old contemporary Aboriginal artist who has always had a passion for creativity. She is a proud Yorta Yorta woman. Her aim is to inspire education and progressive conversations through her artwork.
Her personality shines through her artwork, proudly displaying her connection to Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples.
Vision Australia Seeing Eye Dogs are honoured to work with Holly and to launch the RAP badges during NAIDOC Week 2022.
