We acknowledge and are connected to the storykeepers who have come before us and those who will come after us.
black&write! Indigenous Writing and Editing Project is an Indigenous-led, national project that inspires people from all walks of life to connect with the rich knowledge, heritage and cultures of First Nations peoples through story.
In this exhibition, meet the authors and editors who have been part of black&write! and discover some truly special First Nations stories.

About the Sovereign Stories artwork
Artist, Kambarni, has created a drawing that reflects ideas of cultural ownership and sovereignty.
The drawing illustrates the connection between land, culture and our people's sovereignty.
Key to this drawing is the smoke wafting and pulling everything together, protecting all to share their stories. Smoke follows through the drawing and signifies people taking ownership of their stories and customs. The smoke protects people and their culture.
