Acknowledgement of Country
Diversity Arts Australia acknowledges the First Peoples of these lands. We pay respects to Elders past and present, and recognise that sovereignty has never been ceded. We recognise their continuing connection to the land and waters and their ongoing custodianship. It is untenable to talk about migration and race in Australia without contextualising it within the colonisation and dispossession of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people. We seek to be guided in all our work by First Peoples’ leadership, recognising the immense value that First Nations artists and cultural workers create within the arts and cultural landscape.
