The UMSU Creative Arts Department would like to acknowledge the Wurundjeri and Boon Wurrung people of the Kulin Nations as the Traditional Owners of the land upon which we live, work, and learn. We pay our respects to their Elders past, present, and emerging. Sovereignty was never ceded. This always was and always will be, Aboriginal land.
