The Victorian Institute of Sport (VIS) is taking an opportunity to tell its story through local artwork, in order to develop our commitment to Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander communities and culture.
If you’re an Aboriginal and/or Torres Strait Islander artist and would be interested in helping tell our VIS story and that of the lands on which we gather, please email firstname.lastname@example.org for a copy of the Expression of Interest artist brief. This will be featured on our Reconciliation Action Plan and across the whole organisation.
Expression of Interest closes at 12:00pm on 22/12/21
Draft VIS reconciliation vision
Our reconciliation vision at the Victorian Institute of Sport is to create an environment where Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander athletes and staff will continue to thrive. We are committed to ensuring that Aboriginal and Torres strait Islander athletes are recognised, respected and celebrated throughout the VIS to inspire other athletes through national and international sporting success.
The VIS recognises the role that sport plays in connecting people in the field of play and outside it and aims to inspire the whole Victorian community to be proud of our success. Sport is a shared passion of many Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islanders and non-Indigenous Australians.
We are committed throughout reconciliation journey to weave the five dimensions of reconciliation throughout our Reconciliation Action Plan and the VIS organisation. The VIS are committed to creating a change in our lives through the benefits of sport and we believe that for our Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander athletes, staff, Board and partners this can lead to an impactful change within communities.
Acknowledgment of Country
In the spirit of reconciliation, the Victorian Institute of Sport acknowledges the Traditional Custodians throughout Australia and their connections to land, sea/water ways and community. We pay our respect to their Elders past and present and extend that respect to all Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples today.
