We acknowledge the original custodians of the Australian continent: elders past, present and
emerging whose sovereignty has never been ceded since creation, with our deepest respect. We
recognize the bond you share with Mother nature that forms the spiritual, ecological and cultural
link with these lands and respond to your invitation to walk with you with utmost gratitude and

We hear your call for a referendum and the enshrinement of a co-designed voice for all Indigenous
peoples voice to be heard. We support this and call for this to be auctioned and for all Australians to
rise to this sacred Invitation. It is overdue and essential that power is shared, so we can actively
contribute to the regenerative healing necessary for all.

Through the lens of a collaborative perspective, we have been exploring how the Humanities may
honor and deeply listen to the requests made in the Uluru Statement form the Heart.

Only truths in historic, social and environmental contexts can bring transformation. We need the
space to embody this narrative. Architecture, is a visionary civic service and as architects of the
future, we understand our responsibility to deeply honor, listen to and work with the First Nations
People and Country. We hope to Co-create a story today, for our children to mould and build upon
tomorrow. We learn and practice deep listening and continue to learn by unlearning the deceptions
that the colonial project has taught.

Our Collective explores various means to honor this learning process and wishes to share to inspire
and encourage others to take up the journey also. Together we engage, individually and collectively
as a whole we are called to demonstrate the essential change.

With this collective, we hope to build many more nexuses in the ever evolving liminal that we are
submerged in and allow it to serve as a platform to continue the conversations and visionary
services that honors the truth of our history, these lands and ourselves as we continue to dive
deeper and grow together.

In Unity,
