Innovate Reconciliation Action Plan

Intermain acknowledges the Traditional Owners of the land; we pay our respect to Elders past, present and future.

Intermain is proudly committed to improving diversity and inclusiveness; we are dedicated to the Reconciliation Action Plan (RAP) program and have reaffirmed our commitment by launching our Innovate Reconciliation Action Plan.

Our RAP details Intermains commitment to developing long-term, beneficial and reciprocal relationships, respect and opportunities with Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples and communities. We acknowledge there is still much work to do; however, we’re proudly dedicated to the journey of healing and Reconciliation. Click here to view our action plan.

Our actions focus on:

  • Respect | Focusing on education, with regular cultural awareness training to develop a deeper understanding of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander history and culture.
  • Opportunities | Implementing a road map to create more opportunities for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander professionals and operating a diverse supply chain.

Following The Pathways, Artwork by Dennis Golding

Intermain commissioned Kamilaroi/Gamilaraay artist Dennis Golding, working and living on Gadigal land for the artwork of our Innovate RAP. Following The Pathways depicts lined patterns to reflect the pathways that First Nations people have paved.  The artwork overlays different paths referencing the waterways that connect saltwater and freshwater across the Eora Nation. The tones of ochre and soils were intricately woven throughout the patterns of river streams and circular currents to acknowledge the connection between saltwater and freshwater people.  Throughout the design process, Dennis engaged with Gadigal Elders and knowledge keepers of local stories to highlight the meaning of place and culture.

Following The Pathways forms part of the concept of a large scale mural that Golding has created for the INTERMAIN HQ. Working in placemaking, we are privileged to be in a position to showcase Aboriginal culture through art in our physical environment.

About the Artist

Dennis Golding is a Kamilaroi/Gamilaraay artist from the northwest of NSW and was born and raised in Sydney, Eora Nation. Working with a range of mixed media, including painting, video, photography and installation, Golding critiques the social, political, and cultural representations of race and identity. His practice is drawn from his own experiences living in urban environments and through childhood memories.

Golding was surrounded by art from his urban upbringing living in an Aboriginal community in Redfern (often referred to as ’The Block’). He often watched his mother and grandmother paint on large canvas and sheen fabrics that depicted Australian native plants and animals, cultural motifs, and human figures as a young child.

Golding presents powerful representations of contemporary Aboriginal cultural identity that inform narratives of history and lived experiences through his artistic and curatorial practice.
