Recognising the project team for the iconic City Tattersalls Club redevelopment
At RCC, we are proud to support and celebrate Reconciliation Week by acknowledging the traditional custodians of the lands on which we operate our business.
As a private, family-owned construction company that began on the lands of the Eora nation in 1976, we’re committed to promoting diverse and inclusive practices that support and empower Indigenous communities across Australia.
Recently, the project team for the iconic City Tattersalls Club redevelopment partnered with Aboriginal Artist, Kulka Fahey, a proud Biripi/Worimi Woman, to create three Indigenous artworks that brings together our history, people, clients and communities.
The three stunning artworks titled ‘Yannau Boomi – Walk Yesterday’, ‘Yannau Bungai – Walk Today’, and ‘Yannau Koobauki – Walk Tomorrow’, symbolises the history and progression of the City Tattersalls Club, and RCC’s vision for this redevelopment project to create a long-lasting legacy for our community.
Yannau Boomi – Walk Yesterday
This artwork represents the history of the City Tattersalls Club, with the depiction of the men sitting, symbolising the 20 members that started the City Tattersalls Club in 1895. Each meeting place represents 10 years of operation of the business.
The community and landscape is portrayed through the use of footprints, representing the pedestrian foot traffic. This acknowledges how well-known Pitt Street is as a major central business district in NSW.
Yannau Bungai – Walk Today
This artwork depicts the history of the City Tattersalls Club, with the representation of men, and now women, sitting around the centre. This highlights the progression of the Club.
The joinery around the centre meeting place represents the future evolution of the city and the City Tattersalls Club in the years to come. Not having an ending to this joinery creates the idea of continuation and growth.
Yannau Koobauki – Walk Tomorrow
The split down the middle of this artwork represents the City Tattersalls Club and RCC coming together with a vision for this project to create a long-lasting legacy for our community.
The meeting places (circles) either side of the artwork represent each companies’ values. Footprints are surrounding the centre to show the people within the businesses and the positive relationships they form.
