First Nations Roundtable

About the series

The Australia Council for the Arts will be hosting a series of First Nations' Roundtables for arts and creative independents, and organisations, to discuss the current situation that affects us all in relation to COVID-19.

We appreciate that you are all managing challenging circumstances and that people want to have a First Nations perspective on these rapidly changing times.

A weekly Roundtable will enable people to connect, share and put forward ideas on how we navigate this period of the COVID-19 challenge.

In Solidarity

You are warmly invited to take part in a survey of First Nations' music artists

With the development and growth of the First Nations music sector prior to COVID-19, the Australia Council wishes to gather and hear the voices of First Nation musicians. We have identified musicians that reflect the diversity of First Nations artists around Australia and we invite you to participate in this survey.
