Cultural Commons at the University of Melbourne respectfully acknowledges the importance of NAIDOC Week in 2020. We acknowledge Aboriginal people as our oldest continuing culture. We pay respects to Elders and we acknowledge their generosity in sharing knowledge. We work with pride and respect alongside our First Nations Colleagues. We are grateful and optimistic about our journey.
Museums, Collections and Galleries play a role in documenting the past whilst ensuring the enduring role of culture and knowledge. We care deeply about the future, in shaping pathways and opportunities for students and young people, and we believe in the importance of First Nations peoples and knowledge in shaping this future.
