New Deputy-Premier and Minister for Health Roger Cook deftly performed his first ever curtain-pulling ceremony when launching the Rotary Earbus on Sunday 2 April at Stirling Farmers Market. Rotary Club of Karrinyup raised over $200,000 to design, commission and build the customised mobile ear health clinic for use in regional WA. The launch, attended by over 80 invited guests, was a celebration of the successful Rotary-Earbus partnership and one of the first official functions of the new Deputy-Premier and Minister for Health.

Aboriginal Elder Ben Taylor welcomed guests to Wadjuk Noongar Country followed by a traditional smoking ceremony performed by Ben and his brother Alf.  The new Earbus is adorned with original art from Aboriginal students attending Coolgardie CAPS school, both student designs were inspired by the Kimberley region of WA.

The artwork was digitalised and readied for production by Indigenous Creative Design Agency Gilimbaa in Queensland. For Earbus and Rotary it is the exhilarating culmination of a 3-year project.
