Belonging Documentary

I work in many locations however my creative practice is based on the lands of the Bundjalung people, the traditional owners of the area now known as South East Queensland and Northern New South Wales.
I respectfully acknowledge elders past, present and emerging and also that sovereignty of this country was never ceded.
