Learning & Walking Together

The Artwork story symbolises the important role that Elders, communities and people have in sharing knowledge, wisdom, culture and stories that support our young people and future generations in their journey of life. It shows the importance of relationships and connection between people as the foundations of learning, listening, sharing and growing.

The concept of Learning and Walking Together values First Nations peoples, our culture and how it contributes to the cultural capability and work of Defence. This concept also recognises that opportunities for First Nations peoples to come together with Defence Work Experience Program, provides stepping stones/pathways for growth and future careers.

At the heart of the artwork is our young people and the surrounding Defence peoples, mentors, communities, families and Elders that support through Learning and Walking Together.
