Acknowledgement of Country

UNSW Art & Design acknowledges the Gadigal and Bidgigal peoples of the Eora Nation as the traditional owners of the land upon which we work and gather. We pay our respects to Elders past, present and emerging, and extend this respect to all Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people. We acknowledge this land has long been a place of teaching, learning, and creating. Sovereignty has never been ceded.

Thank you

We would like to thank our Principal Partner, Bridging Hope Charity Foundation, for the support of the A&D ANNUAL 18 Graduate Exhibition and the Australia Design Centre for their partnership in Designing Bright Futures. We would also like to thank Art Scene, Eckersley’s Art & Craft, Workshopped, Berkelouw Books and for presenting industry awards and commendations.
