Representatives from the Westmead Redevelopment project team attended the Burramatta NAIDOC 2018 event to discuss the project’s involvement with the local Aboriginal community, including the Westmead Redevelopment Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islanders Legacy Strategy.
The legacy strategy intends to close the gap at Westmead, committing to creating a welcoming, safe and connected environment in the new hospital building and refurbished spaces.
The team were on-hand with dragonfly balloons, badges, and pens, as well as information for attendees to find out more about what’s happening at Westmead.
“Lots of people were very interested and intrigued to hear about our work and our plans at Westmead,” project officer Caitlin Hazell, who attended the event, said.
“Many of the attendees who visited our stall were particularly excited to hear about our new cultural gathering space, and the engagement we have been undertaking with local groups as part of our legacy strategy.
“Our dragonfly balloons and badges were also popular with the kids!”
