I acknowledge the Traditional Custodians of the lands and waters on which I gather and create on, the Boonwurrung and Wurundjeri people of the Kulin Nation. I acknowledge that this is stolen land, and that sovereignty over this land was never ceded. I pay my deepest respects to Elder’s past, present and emerging.
