I work and live on the unceded lands of the Dharawal, & Gadigal people of the Eora Nation.

I pay my respects to their Elders, past and present, and acknowledge that sovereignty was never ceded.

I make a monthly donation to the Pay the Rent movement in recognition of the fact that I live on this land as an uninvited guest.
