First Nations

Our First Nations programs support intergenerational and interdisciplinary art practices, the development of experimental work and new platforms for intercultural exchange in Western Sydney. We work with deep collaboration and cultural care, challenging what First Nations arts-based projects can look like and how they connect to place. Our projects engage with the I.C.E. Dharug Knowledge Holders Group building reciprocity in relationships and respect for Indigenous Knowledges and standards to protect ICIP.
