Case Study: sister kate’s place of healing
Co-designing a vision for cultural growth
Sister Kate’s Home Kids Aboriginal Corporation required a strategy to guide plans for their bush block, a significant cultural place.
We worked with Sister Kate’s to co-design a strategic and sustainable vision, with Sister Kate’s Corporation members and stakeholders critical to the process. Together, we created a development vision that sets up both organisational and spatial planning for the bush block. This became a plan for a future ‘Place of Healing’.
The final spatial plan for Sister Kate’s ‘Place of Healing’ included a public welcome centre, an edible garden, a fauna walk, an operations building, a healing garden and an event space. Working hand-in-hand with the spatial, our organisational planning provides a foundation for healing through cultural awareness, training and an all-abilities access experience.
