MCA launches its Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Policy

The MCA is located on the traditional lands of the Gadigal people of the Eora nation. The site, which is now called The Rocks, is known as Tallawoladah. The MCA recognises the Gadigal people of the Eora nation as the traditional owners and ongoing custodians of the lands and waters upon which the MCA is situated.

The MCA’s Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Policy aligns the work of the MCA in regards to Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander arts with the external environment. This includes national and international Indigenous priorities and principles relating to Indigenous art and culture. This policy aims to define the intentions of the MCA in relation to its commitment to Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander arts and align its work with Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander arts with the broader values and goals of the organisation.
