The meaning behind the artwork ‘Belonging’ is; “We have all come from different experiences and challenges in our lives, but we are all now walking towards the meeting place at ID. Know Yourself, where we establish our belonging, discover our purpose and are empowered with positive choices. We are family, and family means no one is left behind or forgotten, together we will break the cycle of integrational trauma and disadvantage for our people”.
