Across our website, information flyers and marketing materials you will see this artwork by Jordan Lovegrove, Ngarrindjeri, of Dreamtime Creative. The artwork depicts AGPAL and QIP’s partnership between companies and Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander medical services, communities and service providers. AGPAL is represented by the left large meeting place in the blue and black while QIP is represented by the right large meeting place in the light and dark blue. The different Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander medical and community services are represented by the coloured meeting circles and the communities they serve are represented by the dots and pattern work in the background.
