Last year, Foxtel commissioned Riki Salam and We Are 27 Creative to create a piece of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander art which tells Foxtel’s story. We wanted to work with Riki to create ‘Changing Country’ to show Foxtel’s respect to First Nations Australians and acknowledge Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Australians in our workplace. The process to create ‘Changing Country’ was an absolute highlight for us. Riki spent a great deal of time with Foxtel’s senior leaders, brand team and participated in a half day workshop designed to engage Foxtel employees in our new strategy. Riki ensured he had a strong understanding of Foxtel’s vision, mission, culture and RAP and set to create ‘Changing Country’. We would like to sincerely thank Riki and Diana from We Are 27 Creative to joining us on this journey to raise awareness and engage more Australians in reconciliation.
