AILA Victoria’s State Chapter has lead the most comprehensive reconciliation journey to date. The Victorian Chapter has established an active Connection to Country Committee and their leadership was the impetus for developing a National RAP and approach to reconciliation.
We hope you can join us for this important event to celebrate and learn how we can improve industry engagement, respect for and collaboration with Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Australians.

ABOUT THE ARTWORK
Paul Herzich, a Kaurna Traditional Owner of the Adelaide Plains, an AILA Registered Landscape Architect and a Visual Artist, created the artwork for the AILA National RAP.
The artwork illustrates the 65,000 years of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander cultures and the 200 or so years of non-indigenous cultures as white and blue stars above the Country. Reflecting on the significance of the RAP, Paul shared that “As we walk over this ancient country, one needs to put in perspective how old we (Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander cultures) actually are.”
