We honour the Traditional Owners of these Lands
In 2021 Arts on Tour commissioned Kirli Saunders to write an Acknowledgement of Country poem. Kirli, a proud Gunai Woman and award-winning writer and artist, has a passion for enlivening spaces and engaging broad audiences in bold conversations for social impact. An experienced speaker and facilitator advocating for the environment, gender and racial equality and LGBTIQA+ rights, Kirli was the NSW Aboriginal Woman of the Year (2020).
We worked with Carnival Studio to create a video based on, and read by, Kirli Saunders.

Arts on Tour is based in Redfern NSW and we respectfully acknowledge the Gadigal people as the Traditional Owners and Custodians of the unceded land on which we work.
As we tour artists and productions across these vast lands, we pay our respect to all First Nations Elders, past, present and future.
We celebrate their continuing connection and contribution to culture, country and community, and thank all First Nations peoples for their wisdom in caring for the land, the sky, the rivers and the sea.
