Charter Hall

Reconciliation Action Plan

Charter Hall engaged Balarinji to design its Reflect Reconciliation Action Plan and accompanying style guide.

Yaegl artist Frances Belle Parker was commissioned to create the artwork titled ‘Coming Together’ that spoke to Charter Hall’s key values, along with the strength, resilience and nurturing partnerships that are part of reconciliation. Balarinji then designed Charter Hall’s RAP using Frances’ artwork.

Frances has had a stellar career, winning the prestigious Blake Prize in 2000, making her the youngest-ever winner and the first Indigenous recipient in the prize’s history. She has also been a finalist from 2005 to 2011 in the NSW Indigenous Parliament Art Award, and a finalist in the 2006 Telstra National Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Art Award.

Coming Together

In the artwork ‘Coming Together’, Frances depicted Charter Hall as the concentric circle in the top centre of the artwork, with the smaller circles reflecting its four key values of Active Partnership, Genuine Insight, Inventive Spirit and Powered by Drive symbolised in the sky.

The many layers of the work, whether they appear to be the rolling hills or the layers of the landscape, all come together to signify the underlying gentle spirituality of the lands on which we walk and share this journey together.
