A Reconciliation Action Plan (RAP) is a strategic document that supports an organisation’s business plan. It includes practical actions that will drive an organisation’s contribution to reconciliation both internally and in the communities in which it operates.
Our RAP outlines the ways we build reconciliation into what we do and how we work. It covers three themes: relationships, respect and opportunities, and outlines how we will track the progress we make towards reaching our goals.
Reconciliation Australia’s RAP framework allows organisations to take a structured approach to advance reconciliation. There are four types of RAP that an organisation can develop: Reflect, Innovate, Stretch, Elevate. Each type of RAP is designed to suit an organisation at different stages of its reconciliation journey.
We have progressed from an Innovate RAP in 2017-2019 to a Stretch RAP for 2020-2023, which means we are focused on implementing longer-term strategies and defined measurable targets and goals to embed reconciliation initiatives into our day-to-day business.
This artwork has been designed by Cian Mungatj McCue. Born and raised in Darwin, Cian is a descendant of the Larrakia, Yanyuwa and Mulluk-mulluk people. Cian designed the artwork for our Innovate RAP and was re-engaged to design our Stretch RAP artwork. Cian has expanded on the idea of the initial artwork to illustrate the development of NT PHN’s reconciliation journey. When the Innovate RAP and the Stretch RAP documents sit side-by-side, they complement each other as part of a suite and reflect this growth.
The artwork represents the great expanse of the NT and each region’s distinguishing art styles. From cross-hatching and linework in the Top End, to circle and dot work in Central Australia. The artwork represents the different regions and people across the NT coming together with NT PHN to meet the vision of a healthier Territory. The artwork represents NT PHN’s jurisdiction, which extends across the entire NT.
