We acknowledge the Aboriginal people of what is now called New South Wales and value their ongoing connections to country, community and culture that have existed across millennia.
We celebrate through these connections, Aboriginal cultural strength, resilience and contemporary creativity.
We respect the role that Aboriginal creatives play in contribution to a deeper sense of identity and place through sharing knowledge, skills and stories and the important role that Aboriginal Elders are in guiding this process.
