The Shire commenced development of an Innovate Reconciliation Action Plan (RAP) in August 2021. The RAP has been informed by significant community consultation and active input from Traditional Owners, Aboriginal community members and local stakeholders.

The purpose of the RAP is to provide a two year action plan that identifies key priorities, future service requirements, aspirations and community activities that support and enhance reconciliation in Shire of Mundaring. This is achieved through:

  • building and encouraging relationships between Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples, communities, organisations, and the broader Australian community
  • fostering and embedding respect for one of the world’s longest surviving cultures and communities and
  • developing opportunities within our organisation or services to improve socioeconomic outcomes for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples and communities.

The Shire Innovate Reconciliation Action Plan August 2022 to August 2024 received official accreditation from Reconciliation Australia on 29 September 2022.

At its Ordinary Meeting of Council on 8 November 2022, Council endorsed the RAP. Delivery of the RAP will enable the Shire to strengthen its commitment to supporting reconciliation across the shire through practical actions and good governance.

Rohin Kickett, a contemporary Aboriginal Ballardong Noongar Artist is the creator of the RAP artwork titled, Mundaring Weir. Rohin was commissioned by the Shire of Mundaring and Mundaring Arts Centre during the development of the RAP. Rohin captures an aerial view of the country surrounding the Mundaring Weir. Through his artwork, Rohin tells a story of his family’s connection to this country and how it has transformed over time. Rohin’s artwork was formally presented to the Shire in September 2022 and acquired for the Shire Art Collection.
