Systra Scott Lister, Uwaliko Mariyang Malang Moving Forward Together
This artwork reflects the story of Systra and an ongoing commitment to reconciliation through working together in respectful partnerships that create opportunity around shared vision.
Central to the imagery, a pathway flows upwards within the design, highlighting moving forward together upon the journey of reconciliation and Systra’s mission to provide communities with safe and sustainable transportation solutions.
Building blocks engraved within the pathway depict system engineering and the vision to support Indigenous students in the field is highlighted as steppingstones within this rising imagery.
Traditional imagery of Elders and people upon gathering circles rising along the pathway celebrate the rich and unique Indigenous culture of Australia.
This symbolism holds a fourfold meaning within the design:
- It highlights the passing on and sharing of knowledge to youth by Elders.
- Reflects Systra three key values of Excellence, Bold Leadership and Connected Teams.
- Represents Reconciliation’s three core focus areas being Relationship, Respect and Opportunities.
- Reflects Past, Present and Future generations.
A backdrop of songlines on country is reflective of the many traditional trade routes and journey trails taken by Indigenous Australians over thousands of generations, crisscrossing this great Nation and the connection to the travelling routes taken by people, families and community today.
The interconnected woven lines within the tapestry of songlines celebrates traditional custodians across the Systra footprint Australia wide, celebrating connection, community and bringing a welcome to all to join the journey of reconciliation as we move forward together.
