First Nations Engagement Workshop

Textured divide

Arts Capital is committed to reconciliation with Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Peoples. We acknowledge the indelible impact that colonialism has had and continues to have on First Nations Peoples, across Australia.

Our role in sector development means we find opportunities for critical conversations on access and inclusion and practicing respectful engagement with diverse communities. In June 2023, we had the honour of facilitating a First Nations community engagement workshop with our arts sector peers. Led by Geoff Richardson PSM, the workshop addressed the history and current situation, challenges, and opportunities for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islanders Peoples and best-practice approaches to engagement.

We stand with the First Nations Peoples of Australia in this walk towards reconciliation, now and into the future.
