Event to showcase Aboriginal Art and Signage Project in Coonabarabran

The Coonabarabran community is invited to a free family fun day on Saturday 4th February 2017 to hear about and have input into Aboriginal signage and artwork at the Coonabarabran Health Service.

The Western NSW Local Health District Aboriginal Signage and Artwork Strategy Project have combined with the Coonabarabran Health Service, and Health Council to provide funding to ensure culturally sensitive and welcoming signage and art throughout both the community and acute services at the Coonabarabran Health Service.

Coonabarabran Health Service Manager, Susan Berry, said this project has a strong focus on community ownership and action to enhance the partnerships between the health service and the community.

“We would like to invite you all to a free family fun day to learn more about the project, as well as share ideas on how we should proceed moving forward," she said.

“There will be a marquee and a free lunch of sausage sandwiches, and tea and coffee. For the children, we have organised a jumping castle and face painting."

Brendon Cutmore, Executive Director Aboriginal Health and Wellbeing, who is also leading this project will be there to provide further information and is happy to answer any questions about the project.

“This is a fantastic opportunity to be more involved in your local hospital. So I encourage you to come along, bring the whole family, take part in the fun and learn about this important community project," said Susan.
