Unveiling of 'Kinship' Artwork Celebrates Indigenous Culture at AIS

The Australian Sports Commission (ASC) recently revealed a stunning new artwork titled 'Kinship' at the AIS Strength and Conditioning Gym, showcasing a beautiful blend of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander cultures. Designed by two-time Olympic and Commonwealth Games Boxer Brad Hore, this 36x8m artwork symbolizes unity and connection.

Athletes from the Australian boxing team joined the unveiling ceremony, emphasizing the ASC's commitment to reconciliation and honoring Indigenous heritage.

Executive General Manager of AIS Performance, Matti Clements, highlighted the significance of creating a sense of belonging for all athletes and staff, promoting psychological safety and cultural connection.

'Kinship' isn't limited to the gym; it now adorns AIS fleet vehicles, offering a moving tribute to Indigenous cultures as they transport athletes and staff around Canberra.

This initiative reflects the ASC's dedication to meaningful engagement with Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Peoples, enriching the sporting community with diversity and inclusivity.
