Celebration of new beginnings

The end of an era and new beginnings for CHIRP Community Health were celebrated in March at an event to acknowledge the service’s role in the community and offer a formal farewell.
The event held in the Botanical Gardens began with a Welcome to Country from Aunty Kerri Douglas. This was followed with a formal presentation of artwork ‘Gadjigadji’ by Arkeria Rose Armstrong.
Arkeria is a Gamilaraay artist who was born in Ceduna and now lives and works on Dja Dja Wurrung country.
The painting ‘Gadjigadji’ was commissioned to mark the integration of CHIRP Community Health with Castlemaine Health. The painting is a representation of CHIRP Community Health’s past achievements as well as the coming together with Castlemaine Health for future strength and growth. See the Mail for more…
