Wominjeka/ Welcome to the traditional lands of the Kulin Nations, where we draw on the strength of more than 1,000 generations of arts practice.
We respectfully acknowledge the people of the Boon Wurrung and the Woi Wurrung who have danced their dances, sung their songs and lived their culture on this land for tens of thousand of years.
National Reconciliation Week (27 May to 3 June) celebrates the culture and history of the First Australians and is marked by two important dates in history; the 1967 referendum and 1992 Mabo decision. It offers us all a time to celebrate, reflect and commit to a conversation of reconciliation for a better and stronger Australia.
Waa the Protector
Waa (Crow) is the protector and one of the two moiety ancestors in the Eastern Kulin nation culture. We are very honoured to have Waa’s family watching over us at the Southbank campus these birds symbolise our connection to the land and the Eastern Kulin nation.
