Indigenous Interpretation Strategy
Authored by Danièle Hromek, Sarah Jane Jones, Annabel Stevens, Isabelle Toland for Gunyama Park and Gunyama Park Aquatic and Recreation Centre in 2020
Developed for Gunyama Park and Gunyama Park Aquatic and Recreation Centre
The objective of the Indigenous Interpretation Strategy for Gunyama is to act as a high-level visioning tool that can be used to support the integration of the landscape, public art and signage in order to create a unique place that recognises and celebrates Aboriginal stories and heritage in the built environment. It is also designed to act as an underlay — guided by the Country that Gunyama is located within — from which culturally appropriate themes, narratives and resultant interpretations can be derived. This Strategy therefore identifies how Indigenous values can be interpreted, celebrated and honoured in meaningful, practical and culturally appropriate ways.
