Always was. Always will be.

ART ON THE MOVE would like to acknowledge the First Nation’s Peoples are the traditional custodians of this land and we pay our respects to the Elders both past, present and future for their unique contribution to the cultural life of communities across Australia.

I Understand

Encouraging connections and fostering a sense of belonging and creativity

CONNECT – ENGAGE – UNDERSTAND – BELONG
