Partnering Together In One Group: The Taikunthi Kumangka Artwork

Adelaide PHN has worked with Allan Sumner a Ngarrindjeri-Kaurna Yankunytjatjara artist of South Australia to produce the artwork: Taikunthi Kumangka

Meaning ‘partnering together in one group’, the artwork depicts our journey in waveform and represents our commitment to reconciliation and working with Aboriginal communities to improve primary care across the Adelaide region. The artwork is comprised of individual elements each with their own meaning and encapsulates our values and vision for the future.

The commissioning of this artwork represents just one step on our journey, with other steps including the formation of an Aboriginal Community Advisory Council as part of our membership structure, the commencement of an Innovate Reconciliation Action Plan (RAP), the holding of community engagement workshops, and the commissioning of cultural learning sessions for primary health care providers
