We acknowledge the Minjungbal people of the Bundjalung nation, the traditional owners of the land we live and work on, who have walked upon and cared for this land for thousands of years. We acknowledge the continued, deep spiritual attachment and relationship of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples to this country and commit ourselves to the ongoing journey of Reconciliation. We support the Uluru Statement from the Heart and the From the Heart campaign for a Voice to Parliament enabled by the constitution.

 

We also acknowledge the elders and ancestors across the world whom out of both necessity and artistic  expression developed,  perfected and shared the arts techniques we have the privilege to share and enjoy today.
